Brother Bollocks
is once again
seeking employment

updating
his résumé

his experiences

his references

he looks
closely
at the result

not seeing
much in the way
of objective
accomplishment

a rather
blasé career

for a rather
blasé life

not
that he has
any regrets

Brother Bollocks
was never
an ambitious
sort

if he
were shown
this current documentation
of his decades
of minimal
efforts

years ago
when he was
young

he would’ve
been satisfied
with what
he saw

with what
was coming

what difference
does it make?

he might
have said
even then

we are
born

we muck
about
for awhile

we die

no matter
what
we do

some will
approve

some will
detract

only we
truly
have to live
within our
existence

Brother Bollocks
lives today

submitting
another online
application

hardly caring
whether
he hears back

or not
