I was unemployed for years It was painful plus a waste of time I could have avoided some tears if someone else had writ this tasty rhyme so i wrote up this little guide book, I hope you’ll take less shit than i took Aight look rule numero zero, cast not a wide net, cast the right hook Don't hide from your achievements in an attempt to go corporate There are people who will appreciate you so don't force it rule number 1: Shoulda been one to me. Don’t use your real name if you're gonna be an MC. you're better off called m.c. mister poopoo than getting googled by h.r. to find an aged star looking coo-coo //On the other hand you can't go straight from straight to square Share what you did great transferrable skills to pay the bills I can't wait to share// number 2’s invest in good shoes It's unbelievable how much people judge you by the ones you choose It's true but number two is rilly get real feedback Praise finds ways to get under you til you need it like crack Bad reviews same deal We need constructive criticism or else you be stuck on a game wheel Lame feel just because you can program a hyperlink don't think that your don't diaper stink number 3 half your value you inherit you think success means world works on merit? Spare it if you have a network share it always find time to chit chat and hook up whoever you can  without keeping track of tit for tat number 4, know you hear this before underpromise and overdelivor number 5 is so underrated keep your work and your job completely separated I’ll drop a bomb verse and deliver a hit between art and commerce flows a river of-- number six don't have kids number 7 don't negotiate a day rate With overtime I go for mine to the next pay grade You should be compensated when you stay late  time and a half wine and carafe for your j-date playmate okay eight write as many listicles as possible offices full of people view their next 5 minutes as an obstacle rule 9, be fake you can be real to the mirror during your pee break rule 10 write back to people again and again you might have got caught in their spam fil- ter or reached out on a day his or her fam fell ill or they're testing you to see if you have the tenacity to go the distance or else they just forgot about you persistence overcomes resistance with a lotta clout too and that's one to grow on keep fighting til the undertow's gone swim parallels to barrel swells or else, so long thank god each time you feel the pull it'll help you grow strong (WAIT A SEC) everything i know's wrong reject old songs and prefer a mowed lawn i'll be right back with a new group rules, hold on
