Poetry in business – ‘A doodle at the edge’ by William Ayot

Another meeting, another agenda,
another list of buzz-words, initials and initiatives
PSU is entering Phase Three
While the CDR wants G2 to go to Level Five

If we go the full nine yards on this one; If we get pro-ative, get out of the box; Get our teams together and on the same hymn sheet; if we hit the ground running,  if we downsize HR, if we get the money on board, and our asses into gear; then we can change something, make a difference, change what the other guys changed last week.

Meanwhile the God has left the garden
The muse lies minimised in the corner of our screens
Not dead, not buried, but ignored and unseen,
Lika a doodle at the edge of an action plan

Me? I say make a sacrifice to doodle;
Pick some flowers, speak a poem, feed the tiny muse.
Draw, paint, sing or dance, and you’ll bring the gods
Back into the board room; the laughing, smiling, weeping gods of the night-time and the wild.

William Ayot
