bumptious

bumptious

stupid jobs for silly money

just to get by

pay for things we will never

take with us

anyway

for endless women

who wanted things

as love tokens

as we worked endless hours

shifting things from here

to there & back

I’d last a few weeks

maybe a month

until I found the bumptious one

could be male could be female

but they believed

I should be grateful for

the stupid job for silly money

they would not like my attitude

would make complaints

try to do me in with the boss

these snitches on little better pay

taking the side of the man

being bumptious bootlickers

against people like me
