The Red Carpet

Today we rolled out the red carpet
ready for the VIPs, the Chief Execs;
it’s all about respect, you know,
for those who’ve contributed,
made a difference.
At least, that’s the inference

They’re back from another round
of cost-cutting, job slashing,
efficiency enabling, downsizing,
murdering other people’s futures.
Yeah, it’s time to roll out the red carpet –
nobody wants to see where the stains land
as the blood drips off their hands.

Least of all them.


About George Fripley
I am a writer who enjoys writing humour, satire, poetry and sometimes a bit of philosophy. I live in Perth, Western Australia and occasionally get a poem or article published. It's all good fun! I have two books available for unwary readers, Grudges, Rumours and Drama Queens- The Civil Servant's Manual (This contains all that anybody could ever want to know about why government runs so slowly) and More Gravy Please! - the Politician's Handbook. (available through Amazon). Real name Peter Tapsell...just started off writing under a pseudonym and kept going.
