One of the most disheartening things
About modern business
Is how many regulations
We have created
That justify screwing over other human beings.
T’s and C’s can carry more weight than human dignity
And adherence to esoteric policies
Can allow us to mute basic decency –
Managerial success but experiential disaster.
We sign up for health care,
And ultimately for peace of mind
But all too often find ourselves
With far, far less.
