Maybe it all has to end. Maybe it all has run its coarse. I dont believe in my enemy. I dont believe in my ally. If either only know who I really was. Who am I. I am not your ally. I am not your enemy. I am just waiting for you all to finish each other off so I can begin.

Like a janitor standing with mop in hand watching as a party unfolds, waiting for it to end so he can get to work. Everything just a mess in the making that he will have to clean up.

You having fun? he asks, maybe even with a smile. Inside he could care less. He is just waiting for it all to end so he can begin.

Looking at his watch and gripping tighter his mop. Its almost work time. Almost there. The party goers lament. They too are now watching the clock. They wish for it to never end, but even the sun is against them. All the fun in the world wont make it wait for them. The janitor hears their lamentations, their regret. He is not moved. He has been lamenting and wailing since the party started.

He sat waiting out of place, in his work cloths, with his tools.

The party goers were dressed in their Gala. Glittering in their drunken fame.

Now it all ends and the injustice of time is the cause of their sadness.

The janitor will mop up their tears. He has work to do.

Cosby is a smart man:


"No matter where you work, seek out the janitor. . . . They know everything and they know everybody. Don't ever think that you know more than someone who is mopping the floor." -- Bill Cosby

They are like the furniture, because no one else wants to clean BUT they have eyes and ear. Bill is right. Don't diss the janitor.

good point.

I find them to be interesting. Their view of "us".....the world we exclude them from, is unique...and usually spot on.

Hey Intrepid long time no see
My mum was cleaner in a "secret" facility and dusted the red button, nearly caused an international incident

We still laugh about to this day.
Don't trust the janitor people.

Why is this a rant?

I was a maintenance worker/janitor for the park service. Nothing wrong with honest work. I learned more about human nature in that job than any other.

I actually got into some great adventures and is still one of my favorite jobs.

well it is hard to decide where to place it.

I agree though. There is nothing wrong with an honest days work.

I wrote it because of something I was thinking about and I felt as though they had the best perspective....really on most things. We complain and worry about the end of things, our mortality, our personal little stories...they just wait for it all to end so they can do their job. Offices, schools, restaurants, everywhere.... They watch us in the mean time while our "day" progresses just to begin theirs.

It is an interesting perspective. think about it. I was picturing a dance or a party somewhere, with people having a great time, not even thinking about the time...The janitor was, he was waiting for it all to end. He was conscious of time, and its passing. He wasnt sad about the party ending. he knew full well it would. HE knew it form the start.

He watched them in the mean time, the party goers...he watched not as an ally, or an enemy. He was in his purpose....and the party when it outlived its purpose, ended....and so He began...

Its about perspective.

God is the janitor. We are the party goers....

Why didn't you put that on your OP...

It's a glaring omission.

I happen to agree with your analogy.

Especially when you sum it up like the above quote.

I thought I would add this.


Almighty Janitor
In the unlikely event I ever become president of a company, my first order of business will be to promote the janitor to executive vice president. Then I'll call him into my office and say "All right, Herb, I want you to tell me what's going on in the company. Care for a drink before we begin? I think I have a bottle of Scotch around here someplace."
"Lower left drawer of your desk," Herb will reply, "Right behind your box of El Puffo cigars, which, I might add, are excellent."
— Patrick McManus, The Good Samaritan Strikes Again

Some works of fiction live and die on rankings. The characters have their own power hierarchy, but usually you'll find that each character's power level is consistent with their rank.
Then there's the Almighty Janitor.

The Almighty Janitor is that character who is near the bottom of the scale in terms of rank, but is at the top in terms of what he can actually accomplish. Maybe he screwed up in the past, maybe he pissed off the higher-ups and has been paying for it ever since, maybe he's really lazy, or maybe he just likes his job (perhaps more than clinically recommended). Often, his lowly position is the very thing that grants him access to the true levels of power (for one thing, nobody pays much attention to him, so nobody interferes with him). Typically, he'll never go up in rank at all, and it's a subversion when he does.

Because that is how I see him /them. God AND a janitor, as GOD /Janitor... It would ruin it if I just said that. No one would look deeper for what the Janitor is or who he could be.
