Trembling Upper Lip

3 years ago

Stiff upper lip! But mine is quivering. Wait a minute, thought I saw, familiar headache at the door, and

What, you’ve never been? before, well I can tell you more

Of all the heartache, stress and strain, the awful journey that awaits

A working mum aggrieved and torn, by her blood-hungry boss

 

Now the hell begins, your role is going, call it gone; Sorry we will move you on. To where? Re-dun-dan-cy!

Move me on what do they mean, I’m skilled and surely there must be some other way, Oh can’t it be...

 

We’re very sorry.  See. We need the work done, faster, leaner, flexibility

A sinking, sickened me, feels not like I’m standing there but floating over me

 

So what happened before?! I haven’t told you how I sank and stood and fought and nearly lost;

A combat played out in the dark, the worst of money-loving hearts, strong and rich in many parts

But full of grace, I waited long and shone a light upon their wrong

Eventually I won.

Walk good, xx Marcie
