Leaving Happiness Behind - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Charity careerists
move to unhappy times
when those they’re in
show signs of happy.

The more they move their stations
the more happiness they’ve left behind,
the higher their reputes,
the higher their remunerations.

Leave happiness behind,
in the charity sector,
and you can grow as rich
as a company director.
