My Letter Of Application


When I started thinking, thinking of words that concerned me.
I kept quiet, thoughts came at ease.
I talked to the table and myself, my pen started writing.
I wrote a letter seeking for a job.

Neither was it childish, nor lovely.
Not even friendly, but a letter of request.
I used all tricks, suitable for it.
I wrote a letter seeking for a job.

I went to send it, so that it reaches in time.
To the honorable misters, I was filled with doubt.
Said no job! After reading!
That was the answer, to the letter that sought for a job.

For this troublesome world, where should we go for asylum!
Come one day, we shall succeed hopeful I am!
We attended class, and fetched all the knowledge!
Our letters are under looked, seeking for a job!

Speaking I am but afraid; for he who is top is tiptop.
With the best dental once laughed, so regarded cheap are the toothless.
I wish we reached, together at a time.
How do you consider our state of seeking for a job?
