DOZEN DIM PITS, by Hyoomik

(copyright 2010 Hugh McDonald)

Song is based on an employee interview at a major franchise eatery. I was sitting at the next table.

Hiding away from summer sun
trying to sleep in the daytime
behind the curtains in my room
still too hot to be sleeping

I'll buy myself a boring job
my uniform must be paid for
deducted from my pay next week
what I have will be taken

What will be left for us to eat
I have paid for employment
what is the point of working here
all the money their making
