Tomorrow. Bureaucracy has sent another email.
Maybe this time it will be Redundancy’s countdown
To the bottom Twenty. I’m long Gone, with the very
Model of a Model Civil Servant thrown in
With the Dreamers and the Plodders and the Weary,
And the people at the very Bottom of the Heap.
Just a flick of an HR manual: the Numbers don’t stack up
You see we Map some, others must show their worth
Randomly by Applying for their Jobs again even though
They have done nothing wrong and we Value their
Ongoing Contribution. There’s a Willow outside my office window.
Maybe I’ll swing high, swing low, swing away sometime, sometime
