Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part XIV

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:49 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

When I reached the top
      the elevator doors opened,
            and a crowd of suits
            was standing there.
The meeting had just adjourned
      and everyone was gathered
            waiting for the elevator.
Excuse me,
are you the people in charge?
Ive been looking for you
Heck, no,
      one suit replied,
But Id sure like to give them
a piece of my mind!
His face turned red
as he continued,
Theyre in their union hall,
Everyone knows
that its Labor that controls
what happens around here.
