Tanka T106

When more people skip
Work morale boosting events –
To work than attend –
You know things are really bad!
More than these events can fix!

Notes to this poem…

What does it say when more than half of staff refuse to attend a work morale boosting event, opting to stay at their desk to “work” rather than getting paid to do nothing but listen to some people and maybe laugh a bit? They couldn’t have ventured out in case they were caught somewhere else being paid for what would certainly be perceived not working.

The T-series poems are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
