Paper Cut Boy

I knew work was going to find a way to demote me.
To get rid of me in time…
But I sure didn’t think that I ’d be their paper cut boy.
I mean I shelled out a lotta bucks for this suit.
And here I am standing in this valley of no promotion!

“Shred them” they said.
Yeh just erase the company’s secret debt.

“Easy job, just burn them” they said.
“Important job” they said.
Yeh well I hope they like this photo and the paper story that wasn’t cut.
Read it and weep is what I said.
