Black marks

"Will I have black marks on my soul?"
He spent the day,
Calling them, one after another
To his office.

A reorganization, she calls it.
To be more efficient
And nimble.

But if you do the math,
All the salaries you
Spent the day axing
Might cover three or four
Missing students,
Or perhaps cover two
New development
Back slappers,
Or one fat prof.

Have you been adequately
Compensated for the
Work you did today?
