I can't help but laugh

In filling out applications today, I was completely stunned when a company asked me to write a poem about my last place of employment. 

A poem. 

What exactly will that tell them? 

I can just see them sitting around the break room, laughing at the submissions.


I thought PMC was home
I made the position so much more than my own
But just as I felt I’d found my groove
They told me I had to move
They chose a path that didn’t include me
In changing, they set me free
Now my vista is wide open
And my path is mine for the choosing

Laugh all you want. It's the best I could come up with, that fit the 40-60 word limit.
