The Carpet

A red carpet

All new

Smelling of plastic

And fabric


At a new job

With pens

All lined up in a row

Smelling of plastic

And ink


A problem comes up

Not understanding how to do it

Sweeping it under the carpet


More problems appear

All swept under the carpet

The browning carpet

Choking dust

And neglect


Nobody is trusting

No jobs are done

The only thing that happens

Is the blackening of a reputation

As the carpet starts to rise


Higher and higher

Unless the carpet is cleaned

Unless the attitude is changed

It will fall

Off the pile of thick dirt

Revealing the crumbs underneath

To harsh fire


Being fired

For not cleaning the carpet

Or the floor underneath

The job was not done correctly

The reputation was not maintained

So the carpet

Fell to ruin
