Want Ads (a rhyme)

Want ads, online postings,
and the cycle never ends.
I send out applications
a black hole you can’t pretend.

Is there really a live person
looking at the app I’ve sent?
When I press the enter button
I’m not even sure it went.

Responses formulaic, and some just downright rude
make me wish that I had all I need
enough to see me through.

I wouldn’t have to look for work
I wouldn’t have to beg
I do something with my life that’s real
I’d volunteer instead.
