Phantom HR

The #zombiehr series continues. Today I publish my first poem. Fittingly – this is a scary moment for me. Here goes:

We talk about engagement, I want to help you start a movement

I sit and look at nodding heads, You leaders give agreement

Too easily

So plans are made and papers wrote, You say “approved” leave me no doubt

That what you say and what you do, Are both quite different parts of you

Carry on

So here I stand, on the brink, Of brave endeavour and I think

A glance behind to check you’re there, And it’s too late…

Thin air

You decide, withdraw support, I think perhaps you maybe ought

To write and sing your own work anthem, You disappeared, a leader phantom

I am Alone

I believe that all folk come to work, And do not mean to be a jerk

Yet somehow you can’t help yourselves, And into politics you delve

Protect yourself

If you fancy adding a verse or two – feel free to do so in the comments. Thanks
