March 30, 2017, Prescott-
Some brief observations,
after a long day.
Nature abhors a vacuum.
Humans seek to fill a void,
with whoever, or whatever,
If a child leaves a classroom,
program administrators cast about,
for another child to fill the slot.
No vessel can hold more than capacity.
If a human psyche is filled to rage,
it explodes, at the nearest target.
A system seeks to perpetuate itself,
even if it is unwieldy, inefficient,
People are dismissed,
others enter, stay a while,
and are themselves dismissed.
I’ve seen this, each time I have been let go.
My successors have fared no better.
The present situation is not a crash and burn,
We have a few miles to go, on the treadmill.
Year’s end will tell a lot, about everyone involved.
