Micro-aggression

“Do you really have a choice?

Jobs are scarce, markets stagnant

With a rise in cost of living”.

The psychopath rejoiced

To see competent shoulders

Slightly drooping.

 

No response to messages

goodwill withered away

Logic  unacceptable.

Silence conspiratorial

and eloquent

with disapproval.

 

“A dip in growth, costs are up”.

He flung a paper on the desk.

The whole week was spent

in a failing effort

to explain reasonably

a twisted report.

 

He flaunted a list of rewards

For people who,

unquestioningly

fell in line,

and the fate of Competence

with an independent mind.

 

Quick meetings were called

To pass it down the line.

Pink slips handed out,

but hands were red

with stains of blood

for a lifetime.
