Ironic tribute triolet

tales of woe
empty box
Wounded fox
silent crow
tales of woe

Stumbling blocks
who's to know?
Keys, no locks
stumbling blocks.
Scattered flocks
bleeding snow
stumbling blocks
who's to know?


  1. this little piece is inspired by the "transparent" budget process at my workplace, an institution that claims to be committed to development of new programs and ongoing excellence in existing ones, but which simultaneously slashes funding and asks all of us drones to " be creative". so, my two cents worth of creativity!

  2. ha ha ha Always the workers have to come up with the solutions administrators are supposed to present.

  3. Harlequin...
    Sister, dear one,
    (ahem, excuse the familiarity, but may I swim in you air space, for just a brief while?)

    Here is the most singular thing I have learned about the work place…
    The ones, ya know, doing the work, HAHAHAHA.
    Get a grip!!!!!!.
    Are not allowed to comment. !!!!!!!!
    Hahahaha chuckle (hurrumph)

    I work in an environment of management by JACK IN THE BOX.!!!!!!

    We all do!!! HahaHaHahahaah.

    Love and light to all that can see.

    Btw, I hope I am invited back again.
    (well ok I will not be invited back, but will the bouncers let me in??)

  4. I admit to being one of those people who take part in such a process. Oops. But I doubt it inspires such creativity in my workplace.

  5. WM-- 'twas ever thus!! glad to see this evoked resonant laughter
    Punch-- you are welcome any time any how; i enjoyed your plunging in and letting it rip!! good on ya. the bouncers will anticipate your return with wild enthusiasm
    Madame-- i can tell from your blog that you are a workplace subversive!! i'd rather laugh than cry.
    thanks for the visit.

  6. I love the internal and external rhymes in this.
