Penciled in last minute
Not a moment left to spare
Running for the subway
No time to brush your hair.

Clamoring for a signal
Checking figures, checking facts
Running for the next train
Hoping you can stay on track.

Opportunity is knocking
As you walk inside the door
Anxiety is building
Are you what, they’re looking for?

Years spent with a life coach
Always trying to fit in
Practicing your diction
As you try to impress them.

Money’s on the table
Champagne and caviar
You’re playing with the big boys
Show them who the hell you are.
