DemosNews: Employment Opportunity
Employment Opportunity
By: Robert David Cohen



We have an opening
For a human being.

Must be alive
-- or have plans to be born.

Experience breathing:
A must.

Dreams:
Required.

Thin skin,
Laughter,
Fear,
Love of justice
And papayas:
Essential.

Must have a track record
Of getting up
After falling down.

Must be prepared to grow
Wings.

No application required.

Successful candidate
Starts immediately.
