Sarah St Vincent Welch #297 The Muses are Job Ready (maybe) (after SH)



they’ve upgraded their IT skills
learned PhotoShop
brainstormed a business plan
they’re in the 21st Century
Creative Industries
a major part of the economy
(though under recognised)

but their funding’s been cut
and they’ve been downsized
efficiency dividended

still they’re Job Ready
buttoned up their suit coat
top buttons
addressed their selection criteria
turned their phones to silent
ready with the answers

in your fantasies

the dance is circling
poetry is howled
history is going wild

  1. Yes.

    'the dance is circling
    poetry is howled
    history is going wild'

    ...and I'm hanging on for the ride.
