At least he tried to make it sound like it wasn't my fault.
At least it took him weeks to actually pull the trigger.
And the severance was thoughtful.
If only I knew that they'd miss me.
That they'd hate to see my empty desk when they walked by.
That at least once, someone would say "Well, this sucks," because I was gone.
Worst fear...that it won't even matter to them
While I'm sitting here, obviously struggling
More than I should be
If only I hated my job
And they were smelly tyrants
With no sense of humor
It was just a job
It was only 42 weeks
And I made my share of mistakes
But the biggest one...
That would cease to exist
