Prudence


The Company called a meeting
The biggest there'd ever been
Some came by road and rail
Some came by flying machine
Some came by balloon, by boat
One even came by submarine
One dropped in by parachute,
To ensure he'd be seen.
Smart casual dress they'd said
But  don't attend in jeans
It's an honour to attend
The biggest meeting ever been

I was one of the many chosen
The management chose to go
There was music and fanfares
And a flashing strobe light show
The Chief Executive strode out
Across the well lit stage
This was cutting edge stuff
For a new techno age
The reason for this gathering
Prudentia she of classical grace
replaced as company image
By an outline headbanded face.

They'd come by road and rail
By sea air and submarine
For the biggest gathering
The staff had ever seen
The company had that day
To a very  large  extent
ground almost  to a halt
For a stupid non event.
When the pay round was due
It came as no great surprise
They didn't have the money
To give any staff a decent rise ,
