Poppy Bullard: The Freelancer

He shuns the term “unemployable”;
Prefers to think of himself as loyal
To, rather than befits a normal graduate,
Maintaining his status as full-time LADuate.

His days in the “office” are few and far between
(But that’s neither shameful nor demean-ing)
because there’s little worth in an MSc
If you don’t spend your time getting M-essy.

There is far too little appreciation
For the conscientious advocates of inebriation.
For him, no necessity that graduation destroys
The rights to the hashtag “BoysBoysBoys”.

So if you want to get something done,
Don’t bother asking a busy person.
With nothing but favours to fill the void,
Just find the terminally unemployed.

No hobby too small; seemingly never bored,
A palace of free-time, over which he lords,
If only to conclusively demonstrate:
“Baby, I ain’t unemployed. I’m a Freelance Graduate.”
