Space In The Workplace - Poem by louis rams
i gave up my space in the workplace.
economic struggles and despair
are being seen everywhere.
retirement used to be somthing seen
and with this economy it's just a dream.
you work hard all your life
and go through the struggles and strife.
just to see your dreams shattered
and to the politicians it does'nt matter.
they've already lined their pockets
with corruption and graft
and thought forever it would last
and now that will be part of the past.
there is a new sheriff in town
and he won't let his guard down
he has seen enough from people he met
and now he is out to get
all those who have accepted bribes and kickbacks
and he won't ease up the slack.
this space in the workplace that we have lost.
to the politicians will be an expensive loss.
now that the people have gotten up and spoken
this chain of corruption will be broken.
so to these politicians i say 'beware'
you better run and hide in fear.
the economy will get better, this i know
but! it will be going very slow.
so till then we'll have to tighten the belt
for this is something we all have felt.
