Corporate warfare – Life Games


Life is not a game!

Going through my drafts I came upon this . Two verses were used in another article, the words are now all awaiting their turn for sharing. It’s the thoughts of a leader injured on the job and an organisation’s determination to avoid association with the liability. Everything which is not positive gets hidden in the corporate world if possible. Injuries on the job are not noted when staff are urged not to make police reports, or to keep their jobs- be silent! ISO and OSHA standards are of no value if not enforced.

Fear can keep the ‘thoughtful strong’ quiet and make the weak strong in understanding. No admonishments, just acceptance. If life is a game at work the stakes are higher than the prize.

Do you leave your men when they fall

Do you leave your men when they fall in battle
Do you take them to the front
yet walk away when they fall
their eyes are open
and heart beating still
do you cross over
turn away
when they touch the ground
Do you feel their pain as the air lifts them up

does the sharp gasp send you reeling
Do you leave and turn away
when they fall … for you
Do you feel their eyes  departing
Can you feel the pause 

when life is suspended
when the break in the wind
sees blood pouring out
Can you feel the heart beating
as it watches you depart
Can you feel the hope
gone from your own hands
 Yes ..your soldier has fallen 

from the battle field
up in front
from the line of the march
where he gave
All his comrades see him fall
to his pain
no one held him back
from the line of attack…..
Do you feel my pain

as I call out in the night
the battlefront  never lets me go
looking up to the sun
with my eyes open wide
fallen , but alive
my heart is beating.
Do you feel my anguish and walk over

walk away
despair …leaving  life on the ground
once revered
Can you feel your own place
in the battle of  ‘lost  hope’
Can  you spare  your soldier .. he did work.

What do you stand for when you cannot stand? Who fights on behalf of those who take on the Goliath of the corporate world. Be kind, be just, be fair, and whatever you do have a heart which beats blood and not dollars and cents!
There is no feel good end filled with lollipops…. but a good feeling in endurance.
In peace.. it goes out into the world now.. released!

  1. Sadly, most people and organisations wouldn’t give a hoot when a co-worker falls. The first thought in their minds is, am I liable? Or, could I escape liability. It’s one of the tragedies of the working world.

    And yes, ISOs are meaningless if not enforced. Just another label paid for.
