White Shirt, Black Tie

Another sentence started with “soâ€?
And followed by nothing.
Mouths make sound and
Congratulate mediocrity
While focus is lost in the too-thick cloud
Of politics.

Decisions, based on inexperienced and
Biased detachment, are made
And enforced.
Goals are diluted to dribble
And forgotten in the pursuit of metrics.

Time is wasted in the quest
For metrics.
Another email sent. Another received.
And men grow old without having
Lived their lives.
