"Is Your Work Now Getting to You ?!?" … A Poem written by Big Virge 28/11/2006

Well Nowadays …
It Seems To Be Getting To … Quite A FEW … !!!!!

Well Actually There Are Multitudes …
Now Taking ABUSE From Those Who CLEARLY RULE The Roost … !!!

Management Groups In CORPORATE Suits …
Who Use Boardrooms To Plan Their Coups … !!!

They're BREAKING Rules And People TOO … !!!!!!!
Through SHADY Moves They Choose To Use …

Are You … HAPPY At Work ... ?
Or Does It Get To You When Colleagues Shirk … !?!

Then Are … " UNTRUE " … !!!

... "I SENT THE MAIL !" ...

.... "Who'd you send it to ?" ...

... "I SENT IT TO YOU !" ...

.... "When exactly, Mr. Blue ?" ...

... "IT WAS SENT ON THURSDAY !" ...

.... "Thursday, you say, Let me check that date !
.... You're telling tales ! Do you have no shame, as well as no brain ?
.... Last Thursday you claimed, you were sick all day !"

SEE That's The Way To Play The Game … !!!

ENSURE That They CANNOT Escape … !!!
Through ANY OLD PLAY They Try To Make … !!!

Make Them Pay For Trying To Say ...
YOUR Name Instead of Facing Blame … !!!

Well The Game Nowadays Is Getting Worse … !!!
ENOUGH To Make A PREACHER CURSE … !!!!!

Working Away Night Time And Day ...
Just To Get THAT HOLIDAY And HIGHER Pay … !!!

Okay That's GREAT But NOT When STRESS Consumes Your Brain … !!!!

NO Pay Cheque Can REMOVE That Pain … !!!!!

Work's Now A Test That Some Suggest …
Is Fruitless Worthless And POINTLESS ... !!!!!!

By The Time You Get Home ...
You're UP AGAIN … Mind State BLOWN … !!!
Through LACK of Rest In Twilight Zones That Seem ENDLESS … !!!

CASH IS The Goal But What Do You Know … ?
If Work's A Strain Upon Your Brain …
NO Amount of Pay Will Keep You Sane …

If Your Working Day …
Leaves You Feeling Frail And Mentally DRAINED … !!!

Many People Now Say That … " Things have changed ! " …

Work's NO FUN And Has Become …
A Thing From Which They Want To RUN … !!!

That's NOTHING New So I'm Confused ... ?!?

Work's Still The SAME ...
So Have People Now Changed In The Computer Age … ?!?

Or ...
Have They Had A Role To Play In How Some Now Behave … ?!?

Quite A Few ... Are RUDER Now …
And Work's Their Cue To FROWN And SCOWL … !!!

We Communicate LESS ...
TOO MUCH Internet And Technological Trends Leave MANY Jobless … !!!!!!

Many Now Are BRAIN DEAD … !!!
So Try Their Best To Prove They're Adept …
When They're CLEARLY INEPT … !!!!

Just Observe At Work …
You Know it's True Cos' You See Them TOO … !!!

Or Are My Words ... Describing YOU … ?!?

Misery It Seems ... FILLS Working Weeks … !!!
Because of Colleagues Whose Abilities WREAK … !!!!
As Much As They DO … When They SPEAK … !!!

Companies ... Now FILLED With Sneaks … !!!
From TOP EXECS Who Cash LARGE CHEQUES …
To Employees Who Are … WORTHLESS …
Being At Work Is Clearly Causing STRESS ... !!!

So Be Careful I Suggest With Whose Buttons YOU PRESS … !!!
Because You May Get HURT From What Comes Next ... !!!

Many Workers Are TENSE ... !!!
So KEEP Your Cool When Dealing With Them … !!!

Stay AWAY From The SHARKS In The Office Pool …
Do What's Smart Look At Them And LAUGH ….. !!!!!
So Having Come This Far I've Got To Ask … ?

When You Think of Work … ?
Does It … BRIGHTEN Your Mood … ?

Or ….

...... " Is Your Work Now Getting to You ? " ......
