The Ghost of Corporate Future

a man walks out of his apartment
it is raining, he’s got no umbrella
he starts running beneath the awnings
trying to save his suit
trying to dry but no good

when he gets to the crowded subway platform
he takes off both of his shoes
he steps right into somebody’s fat loogie
and everyone who sees him says, ewww

but he doesn’t care cause last night he got a visit from
the ghost of corporate future
the ghost said, take off both your shoes
whatever chances you get
especially when they’re wet
he also said,

imagine you go away
on a business trip one day
and when you come back home
your children have grown and you never made your wife moan, and

people make you nervous
you think of the world as ending
and everybody’s features have somehow started blending
and everything is plastic
and everyone’s sarcastic
and all your food is frozen, it needs to be defrosted
you’d think that the world was ending right now

well, maybe you should just drink a lot less coffee
and never ever watch the ten o’clock news
maybe you should kiss someone nice
or lick a rock, or both

maybe you should cut your own hair
cause that can be so funny
it doesn’t cost any money
and it always grows back, hair grows even after you’re dead, and

people are just people
they shouldn’t make you nervous
the world is everlasting, it’s coming and it’s going
if you don’t toss your plastic
the street won’t be [so blasted?]
and if you kiss somebody then both of you’ll get practice
the world is everlasting
put dirtballs in your pocket
put dirtballs in your pocket and take off both your shoes
cause people are just people
people are just people like you

the world is everlasting
is coming and is going

    , details make or break the armuegnt.. And that could not be much more accurate at this point. Having said that, permit me say to you just what exactly did give good results. The text is pretty convincing which is probably the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can easily notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not convinced of exactly how you appear to unite the ideas which inturn make the final result. For the moment I will subscribe to your issue but wish in the near future you link the dots much better.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have pnetersed this particular issue plus it really does supply us some fodder for thought. However, from what I have witnessed, I just trust when the actual commentary stack on that people today keep on point and in no way get started on a soap box associated with some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this outstanding piece and though I can not go along with it in totality, I value your viewpoint.
