The Interview – A Drabble

Stand up straight, your life’s in their hands, one wrong word could mess up your plans.

Stand, don’t sit, until you are told, answer questions and make them bold.

Truth, not lies you’re always found out, when it does you’ll be left with nowt

Try not to sweat, it’s not a good look, dress to impress, the oldest trick in the book

Shake their hand with a firm grip, make sure you don’t fall or trip.

Eye to eye contact, hold their stare, make them feel like you really care

Congratulations the jobs yours, you’re now ready to sweep floors


One thought on “The Interview – A Drabble

  1. Great! This Drabble holds true to the original intention of the Drabble creator, in that the last line should give the reader a fresh piece of information that completely upends what the reader thought they knew, and therefor what they should expect.
