    What makes a thief?
    A disability in morality,
    A person who lacks humanity,
    Cause a humane person wouldn’t steal,
    So you want me to judge your fictional hypothetical situations in the hopes that ill squeal.
    No deal, I feel that taking from your company is like picking an apple from a tree,
    Now I’m supposed to critique my words in the hopes you’ll take a liking to me.
    So you say this position needs to be filled by 1 of 3.
    Most likely 2 dudes who are better qualified and come opinion free.
    Oh I see, your company wouldn’t steal to fill a need.
    Wouldn’t pollute the earth making it task for kids to breath.
    Wouldn’t play god to profit off suicide seeds.
    Please, your morals compass needs to be adjusted a few degrees,
    If I saw a co-worker stealing I would probably just shoot the breezes
    Or ask if they need help unloading that plasma TV.
    Do u know my life or what I’ve seen.
    Do really expect my morals to be in tune with the profits that board room execs foreseen.
    While my people are continually creamed,
    Marginalized while profit margins reach heights unseen.
    U seem to expect another institutionalized reject,
    So I elect to eject from this attempt to get out of debt
    Fvck your slave wage and your qualifying questions,
    No Respect!!!

    This made me think of some of the questions asked on an interview that are supposed to determine whether or not we will steal. They're sort of comical, you know what the "right" answers are. They should be checking up on those higher ups instead. I liked this thought provoking drop. Welcome to destee.
