Job Requirements

March 1, 2009
Excuse me sir, can I help you?
What were you looking for?
You said you were searching for something.
Can I help you find it?
Maybe it's your mind.
You're crazy. Foolish thoughts are of the few things you still own.
Maybe it's your sense of direction.
Your aimless wandering does you no good, does justice to no one.
Maybe it's your sight.
You can't see the beauty of the world around you, so sad you are.
Maybe it's the love.
You lost it long, long ago while you were fixated on selfish vanities.
None of these things?
All of these things?
I see,
You're seeking yourself.
Good luck.
That's not in my job requirements sir.
