An “heroic” turnaround manager arrived with his brigade only 100 days ago.
A poem was discovered in the drawer of a former middle manager, who was understood to be the victim of this aggressive corporate turnaround.
Wretched (Turnaround) Man
(after Stevie Smith)
Wretched man that thou art
How thou piercest the corporate heart
With thy purging and our endless graft
And thy lack of enterprise craft
The years drift away, and nothing but this poem remains.
