they’ve made us redundant

redundant
replaced like a circuit board
in a a vast machine

unplugged
bereft

but a circuit board sleeps
after it is replaced
made redundant

i walk the streets with a sign
and sit on a corner begging for change

maybe not all that bad for other redundants
heard about a fellow
who got his brother to give him the money for
a food stand.

they took away my job

but more than that
they took away my dignity
