“Excuse me, sir,
I’m looking for ‘them’ --
do you know
where they are?”
“Of course I do --
everyone knows
where they are,”
      he frowned at me
      as he set his briefcase down.
“They’re in the Board Room,
up there on the 47th floor.”
      He pointed to the top
      of the tallest building.
“When you find them,
tell them to shape up.
There are problems
that need taking care of
and people
who need their attention.”
