Psalm of the Iron Rice Bowl

Dear Great Spirit: CC; I am Who Am, Jesus, Allah,
Gula-Bau, Mao, Soros, Prince Bandar, the C.I.A….,
Although the poor and nepotistas
will be always with us, I placed my resume
inside cracks of US Treasury walls and lament.
Unemployed, I can only tithe 10%
of benefits to support Israel’s Iron Dome,
(sigh),
too bad how Pentagon coughed-up merely
$429 Million more?

I need a job, even a lousy one or two.
I have unique Q&E, so please consider me?
For 13-episodes,
I watched Spielberg & King’s Under the Dome,
never once distracted by Activia commercials.
For 40-days, 40-nights, @ Job Training,
my adept hands assembled LEGO parts,
constructed “Micro World, The Nether.”
I tried (but failed) bribing Luzerne County
“Kids for Cash” Judges Ciavarella and Conahan
to consider sentencing juveniles to a Nether life
of misfit toys.

In slim-fit Levis, bred on Han pork & fried rice,
I say nobody in America’s
more qualified than I for an entry-level position
and building Israel’s Iron Dome.
Nobody, nobody!
However sweet is life in Scranton Steamtown Mall,
from whence LEGO “Ghasts & Zombie Pigman” fled,
please take note, I am willing to travel east,
but not by way of South China Sea.
So if ears can hear, eyes can see,
please peruse my resume, pass it around?
