GRIEVANCES

the dead gathered
for a meeting
in conference room A

the silence
was deafening

there seemed
much to complain about
but nobody said a word

there was some
angst related to
a general lack of respect

bad feelings
about recent
policy changes

cut backs
and
pay cuts

the lack of qualified staff

impossible quotas

outright lies
and double talk

still
the dead
just lay there

until the bosses left

then that shit
opened right up
