JUST ANOTHER FAILED BUSINESS
(5/7/17)

the possibility
seems tragic
when considered
during good
circumstance

lost jobs

lost paychecks

individuals

families

having to cope
with the loss
of income

having
to scramble
for new careers

job applications

resumes

we are then
grateful
that the worry
is a far flung
eventuality

but toward
the actual end
of the downhill
slide

when all
conjecture
is complete

things
simply cease
to exist

new ones
must begin

no tragedy
at all
really

just
transition

much
as death
will be

but at least
in that instance
the paperwork
involved
will not be
our concern
