    This poem was written during a disenchanted employees' hour of escapade: a poetry-writing competition we held to release our collective colleagues' frustrations against a visionless department head -- an expatriate's -- style of management.

    During the year of retrenchment, as economic woes threaten the world of TV broadcasters, in which I was a producer of entertainment programs, those of us "lucky" enough to keep our jobs spent our aimless days loitering in the company compound, surfing the internet, playing UNO, participating in Mad Hatter's Day competition, and writing poems of disgruntlement against the management, basically criticizing them for paying us for doing nothing.
