Got this idea for a series of poems based off of peoples shitty (or not?) experiences working under corporate jobs.

And listen to The Talking Heads while you're reading and writing about corporate

Thusly I put all my money in Enron
And soon our only nest-egg twas gone.
But the jokes on my wife

ENOUGH about our slightly used futon!
