So Cold – Poetry Saturday

Penni gets up on her birthday Monday
She’s in a good mood cause the weather’s sunny
Her boss gives her the news that her job has got to go
Man I hope that I could never be so cold

John has worked for the company 15 years now
First job out of college but the economy’s down
Now you’re letting him go could I be so bold?
Man I hope that I could never be so cold

Everybody’s been beaten so down
They’re just getting back on their feet
So we’re not making enough profit today
With a little luck who knows where we’d be?

Henry in the mailroom is 60 this year
Of course he’ll bounce back have no fear
Just give him a handshake and off he goes
Man I hope I could never be so cold

It’s my company now and we’re hurting so bad
Cut the payroll in half or no company to have
Then maybe I can get the damn thing sold
I guess it’s my turn to be so cold

Everybody’s been beaten so down
They’re just getting back on their feet
So we’re not making enough profit today
With a little luck who knows where we’d be?

Sometimes the bank just won’t give us more dough
Then it’s our turn to be so cold
