Objection Over-Ruled - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Would a change be easier to accept,
If the doing of it could be scheduled?
And everyone agreed upon that date,
Without it being inconvenient?
To then be declined when that time comes,
Because it had been discovered...
It to be inappropriately prioritized,
Over something else qualified as more urgent?
Or would a debating of change,
Allow those to feel entitled to do it when they wish.
And...
If those folks collecting votes warranted,
That a process deemed fair to open for discussion...
Had been done with a validating of every vote taken.

'We believe we have enough votes to delay any changes,
Until it becomes absolutely necessary to make them effective.'

~Are there any objections? ~

'There are those who could not attend this meeting,
Because they had prior obligations.~

~Objection over-ruled.
Is there anything else on today's agenda? ~
