“Job Posting” — A Poem

 

Number of positions

that may be staffed

with this advertised process

is 1.

 

We encourage members of equity groups

and all interested individuals

to apply.

 

This job is open

to employees of the Agency

occupying a position

in the National Capital Region

south of the river,

between the highway

and the shopping centre,

in building 7,

3rd floor,

where the name tag

on their cubicle

starts with

Edward.
