Well, there does seem to be a lot of this going around …!!!… “Redundancy” … a poem written by Big Virge on the 12/04/05 yes I did write it then …!!!… because some of us were facing this before all todays’ cry babies who thought it would never happen to them !!!

REDUNDANCY IS ……..
A … HORRIBLE … THING … !!!
BUT … WHO ARE THE ONES … ?
THAT … MOST FEEL THE STING ?

THOSE WHO …. CONTROL ….
THE EMPLOYMENT BULLRING … ?
OR THOSE WHO SIT WAITING ….
WITH …. NO BELL TO RING …. !!!

FOR WHOM …. DOES THE BELL ?
REALLY ………. TOLL …….. ?

GIVE ME A DRUM ROLL ….
BEFORE … I’M REDUNDANT ….
AND LEFT IN THE COLD ….

THE UNIONS ARE DEAD ….
SO EMPLOYERS …. NOW GET
TO DO …. WHAT THEY LIKE ….
COS MOST YOUTH ARE BRAINDEAD !!!

THEY ALWAYS ACT BOLD ….
BUT …. DO WHAT THEY’RE TOLD ….
ASK THEM ABOUT BUSINESS ….
NOT ONE … SEEMS TO KNOW … !?! …
WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM ….
WHEN COMPANIES …. “FOLD” ….

THEY QUICKLY GET KNOCKED ….
WHEN THE SHIP STARTS TO … “ROCK” ….
BUT STILL …. CANNOT SEE ….
HOW …. CORPORATES …. “PLOT” ….
TO REMOVE …. WHO THEY WANT …. !!!
BECAUSE THINKERS WILL … “QUESTION” …
THE LOT THAT THEY’VE GOT …. ????? …..

WHILE … CORPORATE HEADS …
ARE CONSTANTLY … DRIVEN ……
AGENDAS THEY HAVE …..
ARE …. SUITABLY …. “hidden” ….

YOU’RE TOLD, “NOT TO QUESTION” …
THAT ACT IS …. “FORBIDDEN” …. !!!!
BUT …. LIVES THAT THEY LEAD ….
MOST PEOPLE ….. “AIN’T LIVIN !!!!!” …..

I’M NOT …. DAVID NIVEN …. !!!
BUT …. I’D LIKE TO PLAY …. “BOND” …
SO THAT … I COULD … “QUICKLY” …
PUT RIGHT …. ALL THESE … “WRONGS”

THE WRONGNESS THEY DO ….
IS … hidden … FROM VIEW ….
MEANTIME … THEY SIT … PLANNING …
AND … CONSTANTLY … SCAMMING …
WHICH … “CASH-DRIVEN” … YOUTH
SHOULD NOW …. JOIN THEIR CREW …

THEY LOOK FOR A … “FOOL” …
WHO … REALLY … “AIN’T” … COOL
TO PUSH YOU … THEN … “STICK YOU” …
AS IF YOU’RE JUST …. “GLUE” ….
THAT THEY CAN JUST STAMP ON ….
UNTIL YOU FEEL …. “BLUE” ….

THEY WALK IN …. “NEW” …. SHOES
WHILE … YOURS’ ARE NOW DUE ….
FOR …. “MENDING AND BENDING” ….
FROM … “COBBLERS’ TOOLS” ……

LIKE FISH … WE ARE …. SCHOOLED ….
THEN THROWN INTO … POOLS …
FOR … REDUNDANCY … MARKS …
WHILE SURROUNDED BY … “SHARKS”
WHO HAVE … “THEIR OWN” … SPACE
IN THE …. “OFFICE” …. CAR PARK … !!!!

MY WORDS MAY SEEM DARK ….
BUT …. THIS IS NO LARK ….
REDUNDANCY’S …. groWING ….
THE REALITY’S …. STARK …. !!!

I’M …. “NOBODY’S DOG” …. !!!!!
BUT ………….
WATCH OUT FOR MY BARK … !!!!!
THE ANGELS NOW …. “HERALD” ….
AND SING TO MY HARK …. !!!!!

HARK AS IN ….. ” CALL ” …..
MY STORIES AREN’T TALL ….. !!!
BUT …. I AM …. OFCOURSE ….. !!!
IF … YOU’RE NEEDING MORE CLUES
TRY …. INSPECTOR … MORSE ….

NOW THOSE WHO …..
WON’T HEAR ME ….
ARE ON THE …. “DOWNFALL” ….

LIKE NIAGRA …. THEY FALL ….
WITH THEIR BACKS TO THE WALL
AND NOW ….. CAN’T AFFORD …..
THE PRICE OF THE … “STALLS” …

REDUNDANCY PAYMENTS ….
REALLY … DON’T … LAST ….
UNLESS YOU WERE ONE ….
OF THE …………
“CORPORATE” … CLASS … !!!

BUT … EVEN … THEY SUFFER …
THESE WORDS ARE NOW TRUE ….
WHEN THEY’RE OUT OF WORK ….
TRUST ME …. THEY DON’T SHIRK ….

THEY KNOW ALL ABOUT
THE …. BENEFIT …. ROUTE
AND THEN …. GET THE COUNCIL ….
TO PAY FOR … THEIR HOUSE … !!! ? !!!

BUT …. NOT JUST YOUR AVERAGE ….
THEY THINK THAT’S FOR SAVAGE ….
THE RENTAL …. THEY’RE PAYING ….
BRINGS … TAXPAYERS … DAMAGE … !!!!
BECAUSE …. BENEFIT FUNDS ….
WHEN FOR THEM ….
JUST GET …… ” RAVAGED ” …… !!!!!

THIS IS THE KOO …..
WHEN REDUNDANCY ….. COMES …..
BUT …. THIS IS A …. STORY ….
TO GIVE YOU …. SOME FUN ….

I’VE JUST BEEN IN THE MIX ….
OF REDUNDANCY … TRICKS … !!!
BUT …. HERE’S HOW IT WENT ….
SO ….. FOLLOW THIS SCRIPT ….

” We need volunteers ….
new systems demand ….
that certain positions ….
will now disappear …. !!!”

BUT WHEN VOLUNTEERS CAME ….
THEY CAME LIKE THE … “RAIN” … !!!!!
AND THAT PUT AN END … TO …
“REDUNDANCY GAMES” ….. !!!!!!

” We’ve had a rethink ….
and don’t need to shrink ….
cos people have moved ….
so …. everything’s cool ” …. ?????

BUT HERE IS THE TWIST … !?! …

MY JOB IS SECURE ….
AT LEAST …. FOR A YEAR ….

BUT …. CHECK THIS BIT HERE … !!!

” Your role’s been appraised ” ….

and …. to my surprise ….
from not being needed ….
I got a …. payrise … ???? !!! ????

SO NOW YOU SEE WHY ….
A BROTHER LIKE ….. ” I ” …..
WILL …. “NEVER” …. PUT TRUST
IN THESE … CORPORATE GUYS …

NEVER MIND THEIR FORK TONGUES ….
WHAT ABOUT THEIR SNAKE EYES …. ! ??? !

THIS THING IS BECOMING ….
A CONSTANT WORRY ….
FOR THOSE OF US … WORKING

” REDUNDANCY ” …… !!!!!!!!!!!! …….
