From A to C

Mr A collapsed at work,
They took him to hospital, nervous exhaustion they said.
They replaced him the next day with another
And left him at home to rot.

Mr B retired yesterday.
They bought him presents, read eulogies and said farewell.
They replaced him next day with another
And left him at home to rot.

Mr C got another job - he starts next week.
They patted him on the back and smiled
Then went to interview his replacement
And forgot him within minutes.

They have all retired now,
The hatchet men have had their day.
They in their turn have been replaced
And forgotten.

Now THEYsit at home and rot
With no friends to talk to,
No acquaintances come by.
And all the people they replaced over the years
Laugh ruefully and find contentment.

April 1994
