Powered by Coal – Written October 2012 (Aged 37)

Powered by Coal

people are tired
but managers
barely manage their roles
they are the people
powered by coal
fossil fuelled
still challenging blaggards
to pistol duels
people are tired
and they deeply care
but the overpaid
and the under layered
place them there
just so they play the role
controlled by those,
powered by coal

James Garratt – Written October 2012
