Quids in

I was blown out,
shown the door,
walked across
an empty floor.
I was thrown out
for the sin
of talking back
to a man in black
who said
‘Hey son,
cut the crap,
around here
you gotta be
quids in.’

Got a job,
a dismissal,
a new car
and a whistle.
But then again
to my surprise:

I was blown out,
shown the door,
walked across
an empty floor.
Would I
lie to you?
Quids in.

Would I
