I thought this LOL club could use a creed. I’m no poet that’s for sure, so if you are feeling creative and want to shoot me your own version, I’d love to see it! Email at lol.seattle.kr [at] gmail [dot]com:
I just lost my job today. I got a pink-slip. Oh look, hey!
Is this a dream? Could it be true? Or is your mind tricking you?
No and it’s a real shame. Now who the hell do I get to blame?
Was it me or was it you? Doesn’t matter. I’m still blue.
I sleep in late and rarely shower. I wear my house pants for long hours.
Do not judge. You do not know. The life we lead is tough you know.
I have no job. I have no money. I do not think that this is funny.
I am lonely. I am bored. There’s no one knocking at my door.
Perhaps it’s time I step outside. To find some friends. No longer hide.
I met some friends. They are just like me. We have the same mentality.
We meet for coffee. Meet for walks. It’s nice to find a friend to talk.
I’m trading in my “Scarlet U” so now I am immune to you.
Instead I wear an LOL. A lady or lord, it’s leisure we sell.
I do not fret. I do not frown. Instead I try to be a clown.
A state of mind is all you need to beat the pink slip. Guaranteed.
