Ah, well....

poem by: Frank Byrne
Written on Feb 14, 2017

"I've got bad news," the foreman said,
"We've got to finish you up,"
those words still echo inside my head,
my mind went numb, I couldn't believe my ears,
you can't sack me! I've been here three years!
He's made a mistake, he can't mean me,
he will soon change his mind, just wait,and see.
But yes it was true, I've got no job,
I've now lost the chance to earn a few bob,
Ah, well, never mind, I heard myself say,
then I just shook my head, and walked slowly away."

Very sad but a common story these days...very well written.
Maria Williams commented:
Just a suggestion, but maybe you can finish it off by saying ,when one door closes ,another one always opens. I've found this happening in my life a few times. Well written.
