Going Under

by Joseph Farley


Someone has pulled the handle,
we are going round and round,
all trying desperately
to get out before the thing goes down.

The rats know when to leave,
so do some of the clowns,
it’s the schmoes who do the work
who will be the last ones around

clinging to thoughts of pensions
while the company implodes.
The business has gone Titanic
and the only golden lifeboat
is for the CEO.
