by Jeffrey Parren

Unintelligible intelligence
is utterly insignificant
upon the eyes
of the unknowing
as assumption reigns.

The preemptive strike
to my worth
is already etched
on my name badge
that sits upon my apron,
tattered and torn.

My name is Jeff,
at your service.

Not a day goes by
without me being treated
like a subservient sub-human
either by clientele
or management, or both.

I'd like to say
that I never take it with me
but here we are,
click clacking at these keys,
reliving the many experiences
where my worth
never rose above nothing.
