22 Nov 2016 – Skulking Towards Tomorrow

Bean-Counters drawn to stats like flies to sh*t!
The numbers are the only world they get.
The world of busted plumbing, secret arts,
great expertise can’t fit within their charts,
and so they disregard the wisdom age
endows when summing columns on the page.

“You cost too much! The kids these days are cheap!
We pay ’em dirt, but they don’t make a peep!
They know their place, you old folks know your tricks,
but you’re lined up to sail the river Styx –
so this is our HR’s preemptive strike!
Go clean your desk out, jack, and take a hike!”
