Futility 2013

A bonus poem for the end of a year unremarkable for anything but Tory misgovernment and the usual mismanagement of  British business.

The nagging futility of all this
Seeps into my bones, no work no PILON
As yet, no pay in lieu of notice.
In crushing boredom the night drags on,
In this in between state of limbo
When nearly everybody else is gone.
We ask, however no one seems to know
How much longer we will carry on.
It is as though we slowly bleed to death
While we wait for word from someone.
Enthusiasm drained from baited breath,
Now our only desire is to be gone
From withering creeping redundancy.
This slow death for ever drags slowly on,
Sucking from me the joy of being free,
My work here finally complete, finished done.
My year should be ending in joyful bliss
Not in dragging futility like this.
