The global hiring system is totally broken,
Joblessness is not something I’ve chosen.
I went to school, spent thousands and got my grades,
now you won’t even interview me, to judge my shades.
How long do you think this will go on?
Without a job, no money, now I can’t possibly live on.
Computer technology can scan my resume out of thousands,
But how can I pay the bills, live and travel the miles?
My family despises broke side of me and once dear, friends are gone,
The references changed jobs, now I try to find some colleagues known.
Don’t push me into this loop of unemployable hopelessness
Consider seeing beyond what the work history says.
I can work hard, learn and certainly prove my worth,
It will only take few minutes of discussion on open turf
Economy changed, loonie got strong and profits went high,
Increasing interest rates, rent and groceries cost a fortune, sigh!
What kind of society is this turning into?
Spend, lose, repeat, such a misearable plight.
We are getting worse socially in every way,
Sitting here frustrated, I wonder when I’ll find job for pay.
