We were all busy, as always on any week day
Meeting deadlines, when he stomped out
Threw a file across the floor and ranted
Ranted, yelled, ranted…
Loud, louder and more loud
All quiet, none asked
I will sack all of you and have a new team!!!!
Was the parting shot
Before he turned at his cabin door
And sweared one last time
Dead silence swept across
When one got up, picked up the paper
Read, looked around and read again
What’s it whispered one, two
And all others in unison
Passed around the paper
Whispers became murmurs
Talks, anger, sighs!
This doesn’t concern our department
Let’s ask him, said one
Yes, said one, two
And all others approached him
The management is not happy!!! he thundered
What makes you unhappy? They asked
Not me. The management!!!
Who’s the management, puzzled they asked
He glared and thumped on the desk
At least let us know our mistake, stammered one
Yes, said two and all others in unison
We have the right to know why we are terminated
Ask the management
He takes another copy of the file
Rants yet again
Pulls out a paper and crisscrosses the report
This X and This X and This X and this….
They will not tolerate this rubbish!!!!
He walks out.
