Tomorrow, Again

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

After  tomorrow.
