The Udders Now Collapse Too


The Shoddy Times June 18 2012



Parent Company Collapse In The Making

Shoddy For Sale, As Parents Bail

And end to our company
Was made quite clear
As our trusted employers
Collected their gear

They had been selling
All our assets
Collecting their gold
While making us sweat

Now we're the mad ones
They lied to us so
We're now after them
By exposing their goal

They played both sides
They did it well, so
They played us pawns
Both Chiefs and Bro

Making us argue
For compromise
To save civility
Our morals their prize

They brought that home
They laughed at it so
The prize that we valued
While their fortunes did grow

And now there's chaos
Just what will they do
When they see us
Just walk away too

For with all their gold
They've set aside
It's all based on
Production and pride

While our morals stand firm
On our own treasure
They'll be coming back
Thinning bellies the measure

Then they'll decide
The values that count
To preach what they practice
Under our MOUNT!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
