I wrote this while at the meeting ......whiling the time away while noone achieved anything (or so it seemed)
I stumbled across a heated discussion
Whose emphasis was based on an obsession
With a firm and unbending adherence
To process, jargon and system dependence
What was the issue and what was its aim?
Was it all just a rhetorical game?
What was the debate designed to achieve?
Save the the soothing of egos, reprieved.
A pathway was scrawled on butcher's paper
Processes mapped with ardent fervour
Opinions voiced but not one solution
Minds a-clutter with righteous pollutions
I heard of protocols, procedure and holders of stake
Analogies and acronyms, considered ,half baked
A feedback loop which upon reflection
Was just another form of self congratulation
So are we meeting our KPI's?
Are our resources and good will sufficient?
Let's hire an expert,all sage and wise
He'll fix us all with his lack of engagement.
