Set a task to improve buses and trains,
We sat around and wracked our brains
It was a conference on these and other things.
Teams were appointed and spokesmen too
Sadly that was what I had to do,
While my inner self had taken wings.
As each group nutted out their task
The CEO and minions sat back to bask
Observing us as though they were kings.
Then each group made their presentation
None had caused much sensation
The boss nodded sadly as the bell rings.
Up I get and give my team’s submission
But concerned with a certain frisson
That the CEO gets up and swings,
His gavel and stops me in my tracks
And moans at everything it lacks
Despite that delegates were me supporting.
After a break to eat refreshments foul
We were assembled to see him scowl
As his idea for a plan B was unfolding.
Later that evening after a drink or two
He gathered us together and without ado
Gave a presentation of his plan to fans adoring...
Except me that is.
