I’ve never lived in Dublin,
there is no desk that’s mine,
but Google has an app for that—
the job is all online.

I’ve never been in the office,
I’ve never met the boss.
The email still gets through to me,
the cash still comes across.

If I can work this much for them,
tasking on a screen,
why should I find it hard to serve
the God I haven’t seen?
