Business As Usual (Nothing Personal) (Free verse) by poetry_rancour
Quietly the beast sits in a corner Chewing on a bone Its own How much longer The question begs Can it keep chewing on its own legs?

Up the ladder: HE CAN SAVE YOU
Down the ladder: My Village

Sorry, I don't picture this beast.

I understand. I was angry that day. A company I worked for had fired an associate of mine (did the same to me a few months later). It is about "downsizing", shedding staff, losing FTE's. How long can a company continue letting people go before there is nothing left of the company? My apologies. The poem obviously needs work....but the anger has gone so I fear it will remain as is.

Try adding something like: Downsize to the heart and lungs/And don’t forget the tasty brain
