Positively Reinforced by Paul Tanner

The staff bog overfloweth
the light bulb in the manager’s office pops

and here he comes
with the toolbox
or the rubber gloves,

You any idea how much
a plumber or a sparky charge?
you ask of him
and then comes the smiling response:

oh yeah I bet I am

the rape victim
is a cracking lay
the cannibal victim
goes great with mustard
the starving
are looking trim these days
the dead
are nice and quiet

and the overworked underpaid shop worker
is a good worker.
