“Work-from-home spurs blue-collar Americans to seek shits in careers” *
—Kansas City Star
Certain jobs are down the drain
as workers seek a way
to flush out opportunity
and whiter-collar pay.
They’re planning to relieve themselves
of work-related slump
by seeking time at home to take
a nap or take a dump.
They’re signing on the bottom line
to earn a cool degree
that offers benefits like breaks,
sick leave, a salary.
The secret’s out: at home is where
you go to get ahead.
The hours are flexible, and you
can do your job in bed.
