and post notes and photos about your poem like Roy Pett.
There's no sentiment in business
loyalty counts for nothing at all
my employers couldn't care less
but there's no chance that I'll crawl
I'm nobody's whipping boy to hell with them
they won't ware me down, no surrender
these people are wrong, I'm not scum
I will protect my rights, I will always remember
the thank you mate, I owe you one
can you stay late, change your holiday,
now those favours are forgotten all gone
but we're really sorry to let you go, they say
your experience has no consequence now
things have changed, we have progressed
this is wrong, this is not right I can't allow
this kind of oppression, or am I obsessed,
just yesterdays man on the scrap heap,
all the hard work that they got so cheap.
Someone or something, replaceable.
