Do I like the pay?
Do I like the people?
Do I like the product?

All three is the dream,
but as sure as I'm awake
I'm aware this is an

imperfect world of
imperfect circumstances
I'll settle for two, any two

I'll eat the inkstain
on my resume if chased
by the twin rewards of
cash and camaraderie.

I'll eat my usual rate
if I can gorge myself on
the good cheer
and revel in the work.

I'll bite my tongue in
the presence of the unpleasant
if my wallet is fattened and
the output

sustains me until I have
to pick two again.
