“No”

I have no home to shower in,
No laundry for my clothes,
No money to replace these rags,
No place to rest my bones.
But the library has computers
They let me use for free.
I work hard. I have experience.
Will you still hire me?

I cannot stand for very long –
The pain will make me fall.
If I lift almost anything,
For days, I can do nothing at all.
I could not afford a college degree.
My insurance is incredibly high.
Will you give me a job based on what I can do,
Or do you think I should give up and die?
