The Working Dead

By Ray O’Reilly

Save yourself before the Working consume you!


Friday 21 October 2016

They’re among us

Some named … Cathy, Donald, Robert, Dale, Meredith … Some nameless

They are The Working Dead

Hunched over desks … 9, 10, 11 hours a day

Thick stench of inactivity and wounded ambition

Sustained on routine, machine coffee

Doing just enough most of the time

Little enough some of the time

Never enough at crunch time

Oh, you’ve seen them alright

Shared an office 

Watched them shuffle … 

To the copier, kitchen, smoke room 

You tried to reanimate them

Call them out or cast them out …

Save the team, save the company 

No, forget it … save yourself!

Before The Working Dead consume you
