Clerk Work

We meet again, Bartleby! Your scrivening days 
were always numbered, that restless soul
can't copy lawyering and live.
You knew that, didn't you?
But you wanted to go out on top
of a chair in an office that no one 
could make you leave (not while following the
conventions of the day). You, unconventional
passer-by, you've gone away and ignored
the please and thank you very much
for giving me what I asked when I 
asked, hungry outside the times.
