Employee Discount Card

The glint in the eye holding the small spark of power
is the worst eye
the worst life elevated
to likes of foreman, supervisor,
day-shift manager, team leader,
assistant to the assistant in charge of assistance…
whatever the trumped up designation
it provokes a swell of chest
gush of endorphin
a smirk only worn when the whip’s handle
is in hand and the lash lashes outward
a giddy gleam lights their insides
like adrenalin sweat when contemplating death
they have been chosen
singled out and lifted over the rabble
a shining example
of what solid work ethic,
pride in the job
can get you:
50 cents more per hour
and 40% off any in-store purchases
of one hundred dollars or more
excluding sales items
