THE QUESTIONABLE EFFECTS OF THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN

(Many companies have announced pay cuts and retrenchments. Interestingly, some of these companies are rumoured to have made profits in this financial year, not as huge as in the past years maybe, but profits nevertheless.)

The waves of salary are rolling back,
India Shining’s fa├žade is starting to crack,

Some employers are jumping into the fray
To cut throats, despite a profit display,

Not ‘in the red’, they are just being Black.

  2. You are so right, my friend,
    But this, I fear, is not the end,
    That balance of power
    Has tilted towards the employer
    And the poor employee for himself has to fend.

  3. o.k. so you are trying your hand at poetry? Not bad!?! But confine yourself to limericks!
    Verse is a serious realm of literature.
    Requires much more than skill...

  4. Verse is a serious realm of literature,
    This blog, regularly, Limericks does feature
    Limited our skill may be,
    The reason we write, you see,
    Is that laughing is the right of every creature,

Some like prose and some like verse,
Enjoy these lines that we disburse,
We do the stuff in fun,
And should you not like one,
Please feel free, below, to curse ......
