Big Turn Off

Steadfast workers slave away
Know no perks and score scant pay
Can neither save for rainy day
Nor for life’s phase; where hair turns gray

Boss cuts their hours to display,
His iron fist / control freak sway
Human rights he will betray
He’ll union bust; then bleat,”Hooray!”

Grunts’ top notch work, it’s safe to say
Turns profit for blah boss, blasé
Who, in turn, will dare to bray,
“I did that! It was not they!”

To flesh out boss’s exposé
Workplace welts, unseen, are not okay
His verbal whip cracks spur dismay
More apt for a rap sheet; not résumé

He’ll turn back oft on worksite prey
Turn deaf ear to plebes who stay
Turn up nose at peeved who stray
Turn up in Hell come Judgement Day?

Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
Stay Healthy!

99 Word Blog (#015) Society Needs Sobriety

A WordPress blogger I follow recently discussed how beggars, who reject food and “too small” monetary offerings, likely need big bucks for booze / dope.

The undesirable effect identified… let’s examine the cause

Today’s tightfisted corporate monsters flat out refuse to pay a living wage. The resultant blue-collar blues and scourge of substance abuse are but two sides to the same coin.

How to best help? Be they stoned or sober, bypass the panhandler. Donate directly to existing soup kitchens and vocational / psychological counseling centers… help fund more as needed. A CEO attitude readjustment is in order, too.
