Today’s Short #Poem 076

I wanted to be a rock god
but the job centre
made me work in a library
and I was bored.
I was put in charge
of letters to overdue borrowers
but there were complaints.
My offers to send my friends
round to retrieve payment in kind
or extract satisfaction to the value
of, were not appreciated.
I could tell by his grin
the boss was amused
but he said he’d have to let me go
and so I let him let me go
and I’ve been going ever since.
