Self Efficacy

I’m looking for a job
But they ain’t giving none
I want my own business
But my skin denies my loan

I ain’t got nothing, I ain’t got no home
Living in mom’s basement with her
Landline as my phone
Unemployment office on speed dial

I need my damn check now
I need to buy tissue paper for the house
Soap for the dishes and bags for the trash
Sleeping ain’t free unless my couch moves
near alley cats

I really want to grab the blunt
But I really never smoked at all
But I do feel the gov packs me in
Rolling paper to burn me up. So often
There’s a hole in heart or a hole in chest
With resumes connected to my veins

Bosses sayin’ I can’t hire you but God Bless
America, I need a green back massage to ease
My stress.

I’ve done sat for hours
At a temp agency only to find out
that they lack any agency

Caging Godzilla only makes him angrier
Paychecks are iron bars surrounding the fortunate
With a crowbar I break their security
But instead I’m just bagging groceries

Caging Godzilla only makes him angrier
Paychecks are iron bars surrounding the fortunate
With a crowbar I break their security
But instead I’m just volunteering

I got the skills but no credentials
GED, Diploma and Degree means less
Than being certified by those you know
And those you don’t – it’s a backwards spiral

You want to move forward but the wind keep pushing you
Black: Black Tuesday like the 1929 crash

Dash
Moving with the cash
like Bonnie & Clyde
Robbing banks in a flash

Or more like Larenz Tate throwing chairs
At the Judge after getting caught in the act of cold
Blood killing; but I think society is killing
Stealing the one thing that brings value to us
Humans

To work and toil
To toil and work
Solomon stated that man can do nothing better
Than to eat, and drink and find satisfaction
In his work
God has blessed us to cultivate this earth
For a just wage

Caging Godzilla only makes him angrier
Paychecks are iron bars surrounding the fortunate
With a crowbar I break their security
But instead I’m just bagging groceries

Caging Godzilla only makes him angrier
Paychecks are iron bars surrounding the fortunate
With a crowbar I break their security
But instead I’m just volunteering

I’m looking for a job
I’m looking for pay
I’m looking for a wage
I’m looking for a way

I’m looking for a job
I’m looking for pay
I am Monster.com
Praying for minimal wage
