I’m on a roll…

 Here is the third in my series ‘Tales of the Disaffected’. I can sympathize with the good folks who are in the same sad situation as I find myself, these days.  How long have some of you been working overtime? Don’t you get tired of not being able to spend time with your family, friends and life without feeling burned out? When ‘they’ are done with you , you will be tossed out with the overruns and torn inserts, unless you’re star managerial material, then they’ll whisk you off and we’ll never see you again.

It really feels like we are sitting in a leaky life-raft, too frightened to jump into the waters with danger unseen below, but with the sickening realization that the raft is taking in water fast and will sink soon, anyway.

This is why I have such a loathing of big corporate industry. The higher you climb, the less in touch with the people that really matter you become. Instead of the employees who invest themselves in your business, and the customer who is the true backbone of your success, only your stockholders are a concern to you, all just as uncaring, and greed-driven as you’ve become. They become your only focus, and any attention you give your customers is just to keep the money rolling in. You sharpen yourselves on one another, you lie, steal, you push and shove and gouge out your place in the limelight, and all the unseen people who helped you get there are cut away and left behind.

Wow, aren’t you proud of yourself? ——————————-

…I’d rather trust a countryman than a townman,
You can judge by his eyes, take a look if you can,
He’ll smile through his guard,
Survival trains hard.
I’d rather trust a man who works with his hands,
He looks at you once, you know he understands…
