A Quarter Of A Century Knowing Where You’re Going

Looking for work, looking for money – that’s a job in itself.
There’s some horrible jargon around: in these competitive
times you need to be pro-active is something I keep hearing.
I suppose it’s true.

At least, I think that’s what he said…

So what are we to do?
I calculate the money
will run out soon.

Drink coffee,
go into a blind

Wearing an ironed shirt, smart trousers,
and polished shoes. Having somewhere
to go, get up for.

Last night someone told me he hadn’t
been to an interview in twenty-five years.
Imagine that! A quarter of a century
of knowing where you’re going,
what you’re about.
