What’s the Attraction? (Written November 23)

What’s the Attraction?


It isn’t the most glorious job

And it doesn’t pay very well,

So what’s the attraction?


You sit up front, waiting

For someone with traction

To start the wheels of the day


And the wheels of commerce.

If they are pleased and want to pay

Full price, all the better. All


You ask is enough at the end

Of the month to forestall

The landlord at the door.


He has no mercy and

No understanding. The poor

Man! While you surround


Yourself with all the riches

In the world, he ties himself

To the bottom line.
