The aged mourn their bygone youth at the feet of Mother Nature,
The injured beat themselves up for they were such eager beavers,
The reformers ask themselves why they wanted their workplace to get better,
The wronged saw themselves making complaints as much foolish failures,
As all are now considered ‘the unwanted’ by their employer.
