Job Killer



Beware of the bee
Be careful of the sting
It is not just a sting
It is death
And not just death
It's a journey
The light is waiting
The silence of foot steps coming near
Rainbows at night
Smile again
Smile
Beyond the time set
Dying for a stated price
No more
Interest soon lapsed
We languished from the lack of work that disappeared
Shaded from the dark clouds surrounding us
Ending all rights and privileges
Will they lament our absence
"I'm sorry we have to manage our resources to avoid waste"
It is not time for bereavement
Believe in the cycle of rebirth
Belief and trust
The time will come
It will happen
There is always a beginning somewhere
Always
