Bosses walk past the wounded
on the floor as its care

in the community that’s needed.
Others should help the homeless.

Care on the ground. Bosses should
be less involved. People look after themselves.

Bosses are not nannies. Don’t console
with unhelpful hugs and resources.

We need a hands off society. Folk
Don’t need to be molly coddled.

It is the right kind of neglect.
Bosses apologise if it affects profits.

One thought on “The Hands Off

  1. Well said! It sure does seem as if those at the top rarely care unless it affects the bottom line (money), doesn’t it? It’s a shame that more companies don’t operate with an eye towards helping everyone and promoting sustainability.
