City Minions

City minions walk to work
Wearing white winter fur,
Hair up to here & sheer pantyhose.
Prosthetic nose, caked makeup,
Bose stereo headphones,
And a never-ending sense that it’s all gonna end
Since underpaid trainees in foreign lands do it better
(Not blondes or brunettes, or whatever that clever bumper-stuck statement infers).
Four years have passed since the last layoffs let loose,
Not long is left now til they reset the noose.
