18 Your Neighborhood

April Photo A Day Prompt: 18 Your Neighborhood

Prompt: Ruba’i, rubaiyat
Reference: Robert FrostThe Rubaiyat by Omar Khayyam


There isn’t anything encouraging
Going to a job fair at a college thing.
Some companies just show up
So they can fulfill government bling.

Secret is, most companies post
job openings just to boast.
They’re not really hiring,
Or just hired – the opening a ghost.

Once in a while I catch a thief
They talk about the job in brief.
Then they take it back, for heaven’s sake -
Wondering if they’ve committed mischief.

Once in a while I unearth pure gold
and query in earnest: I am quite bold.
They answer truthfully, answer completely,
I walk away deliberating, almost fully sold.
