A poem

Devour your birthday cake. You are but a January baby. They even make them sing the song to you. 

Important person they make you feel when they name you employee of the month.

Shower you with praises, a revamped title. 

Tease you with possible promotions, a top up on your 401k.

Raises they will give you, however small. It's better than nothing right?

A fancy resort they take you to as a group. There they train you to bring in more profits. 

Count your sick days, call you when you are on vacation they do. 

To remain in their good books you pick, 

In the middle of your honeymoon even.  

Only later is when you realise, when time has passed and your bones begin to crack

Not decades before. That all they cared about, all they really cared about was you building their dream for them. Not you.

    This hit hard. A cog in the machine. Well done!

  • That is soooo true! They never cared about us. And they would just replace us in a blink! Loved your poem!
