X – the invisible management

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

Except him

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

They chorused

Ask the management

Who’s that!!!

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.

  1. This was hilarious! Jokes apart, we do come across such losers in every work place – at least one. I like the way you’ve put across the whole scene.


  2. Though X may mark the spot, they still do not know who management is. Is it him? 😉 ❤


  3. yea Elly; Thanks Vinodhini
