Rejection - Day 19 a "Burn" poem

I presented myself
Neatly packaged, tied with a bow
And there ya' go.

I hold out my hand
Nice to meet you, I'm on display
What can I say?

I'm underwhelming, not what you need,
You just can't see.

You smile at me
We'll be in touch, as I turn to go
That just means "no".

Caren E. Salas


  1. Yeouch! This reminds me of the rejection letter I received that started "Dear Your Name Here."

    Entertaining, as always.

  2. Thanks! Been looking for work lately and it's SO MUCH FUN! (not)
