Misfortune Cookie #4

A pleasant surprise is in store for you,
when after being laid off from the company
you dedicated seven spare-time-sacrificing,
personal-relationship-destroying years to,
futilely job searching for eight tedious months,
falling into a severe depression punctuated by
bouts of binge drinking and intravenous drug use,
overdosing, spending five days in the local hospital's IC unit
in a hellish, nightmare-haunted coma,
waking up to an empty room,
and being released to yet another day in your
miserable, friendless, spiritually empty existence,
you notice that someone has left
a five dollar bill and a brand new iPod
in the backseat of the cab you call
to take you back home to your tiny apartment.
