Struggles over doing my job and being fired over it.
I Blew it

I stand here now facing a window

As though I am being punished for doing my job, but I'm cool.

I have been on this job 15 years!!

"Just because I threw paper and important documents across the floor, they want to

punish me!!!

"They'll need me again."

I started out low, but "they" pushed me to the top.

I didn't want to be high but what control did I have over this matter?

Patiently I listened to all the gossip and nonsense everyone had to say in this office

and never said one word.

Did they think it was easy for me to rotate my head back and forth all day long like I

was at a tennis match?

And now, this is the thanks I get.

All winter long I sat there quietly and peacefully

I admit sometimes I was a little wired and I did carry a blade, but I never cut anyone.

Even when they would push my buttons and walk away.

Now I'm out of a job.

But like I said in the beginning, "I'm cool."

Maybe the next time, "I'll blow them away."

What do they expect from me?

Sooner or later they will miss me.

I was only doing my job.

"I'm only a fan." But I'm cool.
