Ran into her at Target
She said she’d just been fired
Her eyes were glistening and wet
And she looked rather tired

Her hulking boyfriend standing by
She said she’d not foreseen
This coming; nor had she been warned
By any word or mien

But now, well, she would start again
She wanted me to know
That she’d enjoyed our work together
Then she turned to go

And somewhere here on planet Earth
Amid the swirling mob
There’s one more corporate worker
Who’ll wake up
Without a job
