Big Blue Screw Blues

Werner Enterprises complaints are now reaching poetic levels. I suspect Country & Western songs are now in the works.

Randall Owens wrote this poem about the Big Blue Screw--Posted August 13th, 2008:

Screwed again by the Big Blue Screw

If you don't know by now I'll tell you it's true
I work for a company called the Big Blue Screw.
When I first started there I knew it would be tough
but I think that I may have finally had enough.

They told me don't worry it will all be OK
but like it or not we are cutting your pay.
They said don't do anything foolish or rash
we are only taking about 1/3 of your cash.

I find it strange that those who say it will be OK
are the ones who stand to gain the most from my pay.
The worst part is that they have no real reason
My guess is that it is just the screw you season.

For now though I continue to do my best
to keep on working and not get to stressed.
I'll keep looking for jobs, keep pounding the ground
and take pleasure in knowing their time will come around.

I hope someone transforms this into a Country song because it has all the workings of becoming a YouTube sensation. Just need some guitar instrumentation, a chorus and the kind permission of Mr. Owens.
