Entry level fibs,

Sweaty palms, I'll “prove” my worth,

Awkward dance begins.

-

"Passion for spreadsheets,"

Loathing this pretentiousness,

Nervous smiles conceal.

-

Words weave empty tales,

Surely, we both recognise,

This is all a sham?

-------------------------------------------------------

In case it isn't immediately apparent, this collection of senryu attempts to capture the awkwardness of a job interview for a job that's of no interest beyond the fact I was unemployed and needed a job to afford such luxuries as having a roof over your head and buying groceries.
