emotions of the jobbing writer

my colleagues were clear

they did not like my emotions

which neatly caught the problem

I’d told them I felt the company

was heading in the wrong direction

& these sentiments they did not like

but rather than think about our aims

their response was emotive

angry hurt petulant cloudy

& the irony of those fevered responses

to my statement was lost on everybody

I got out as soon as I could

at my exit interview the HR fella

said with a smile & a flourish

this is an adolescent organisation

in that it has daddy issues? I murmured

we are still growing learning finding our feet

y’know feeling our way he said ignoring me

2 years later the company folded

having ‘lost its way’
