Salary Man

Salary Man

 

 

The salary he takes for doing squat
will ruin everything: that’s why he smiles.
Is he worth what they pay him? He is not.
The salary he takes for doing squat
is poured into a vacuum. They will rot
before he pays them back. Arrayed in piles,
the salary he takes for doing squat
will ruin everything. That’s why he smiles.

 

 

–Tom Riley
