PANDERING TO THE ECOLOGICAL by Colin James
At the staff promotion
it was someone's idea
to herd wild antelopes
through a narrow pass
into a hastily built stockade.
But those animals can jump, and did
killing several office workers instantly.
Mrs. Newman who collected the office fund
was the slowest running almost posthumously,
and an intern we weren't sure really existed anyway.
The big boss down from corporate,
stood on a boulder screaming into a megaphone.
He had the look of conviction in those blue eyes.
