The Committee is Dismissed
I have thought it through:
There’s you and you,
You, you and you
(and some more just arriving)
That’s a lot of people devoting time
To what I am doing (or not) well (or not)
I thank you for the attention
But I really don’t want it
You see, there isn’t enough cake to go round
And most of the few cups are chipped
Because I wasn’t expecting you
And I won’t continue to pretend
That you are welcome. You are not.
I am busy and none of you are; not really usefully busy
You are not helpful, kind or amusing so
It may be rude but I don’t care
You shouldn’t be here; just leave
And, as you won’t be any more welcome
If you are thinking of coming back, don’t.
I am opening all the windows
You can shut the door as you go.
I like the fresh air
All to myself.
