Good Interviews Are Important To Land A Job (limerick)

I shouted more than ears could scan

I even played tunes on a can

For job I’m ideal

So they made me real garbage man

      I'm currently job-hunting, actually, and needed pick-me-up this morning so I re-read this limerick and that surely did do the trick. There might be hope for me yet!
