The Lyrics

Unemployable, black balled and barred
Undeployable, I wrecked my car
I was cleaning johns at Burger King
‘Till they caught me filching onion rings
craigslist don’t work, with scammers that lurk

Unemployable, is what they say
With my open sores, and tooth decay
And my, B.O., is annoyable
I’m someone who’s avoidable
That makes me an unemployable dude


My welfare support...
And healthcare are poor ooh

Unemployable no niche to carve
Unenjoyable to bum and starve
Ponzi scheming proved unfoistable
I’m someone who’s poised to fall
It sucks to be an unemployable dude

Hey Lionel, I think this parody describes me! Well done.

Nice to see you writing again, Lionel. This parody describes me too, since I worked at Stein Mart from age 18 to age 24, after which they thought I was alienating customers for some unknown reason, I then worked at a used-car lot as a salesperson for 3 1/2 years, and was let go for being too honest, and I worked in estate liquidation until about a month ago, until the firm shut down due to extensive vandalism and my ex-boss' deductible being more than he could afford. I liked your parody, and 5s to you.

Self-employment sounds like a good option . Fun parody.
