Title: On-Line Recruitment Agencies

Do any of their f***in’ jobs actually exist?
I kind of got the picture that they’re taking the piss
Either that or their philosophy is ‘apply and then get dissed.’
It’s not helping.

I still try every day. Lord knows why I persist.
I usually find something in their today’s vacancy list.
Then I tweak my CV so that it’s a perfect fit.
It’s not helping.

No-one replies. Not even to acknowledge.
An email would be good. Just something to encourage.
But it’s black hole land that saps all hope and courage.
It’s not helping.

I understand that they have to make themselves look good.
But it’s no good felling trees if you don’t need the wood.
Where’s the integrity in pretence at someone else's expense?
It’s not helping.
