company folk and the 2%ers

how am i supposed to find company
at a company full of company people?
i’m convinced that my two percent
rule doesn’t apply in this environment.

the two percent rule essentially
states that ninety-eight percent
of you are goddamn worthless.

the CEO walks by; awkward stare.
in the elevator with the Chairman;
awkward silence.
in the bathroom with the President;
awkward glance over.

…time to head back to my “desk”

i’m gonna ingest these laced brownies,
sit at my cubicle, stare at my computer,
and watch my screen saver bounce around;
that’s what I call a good day’s work.
