I Sat in a Strategy Meeting Today

 

I sat in strategy meeting today
The purpose to help us determine our way
We talked a whole lot and had nothing to say
I sat in a strategy meeting today
 
I cared in a strategy meeting today
For a brief shining moment I pictured “the way”
But the meeting got worse and hope faded away
I cared in a strategy meeting today
 
I sat in a strategy meeting in fear
We said the same thing that we said every year
And the prospect for change seemed to just disappear
I sat in a strategy meeting in fear
 
I sat in a strategy meeting so bored
As the verbiage increased and the rhetoric soared
My eyelids grew heavy, my rear got quite sore
I sat in a strategy meeting so bored
 
I slept in a strategy meeting a bit
Nobody noticed or threw a big fit
I snored just a little with drool on my lip
I slept in a strategy meeting a bit
 
I sat in a strategy meeting and dreamed
Of working together as one vibrant team
And when I woke up I wanted to scream
I sat in a strategy meeting and dreamed
 
I spoke in a strategy meeting today
So sick of it all I just had to say
The meeting was useless, a waste of a day
I just didn’t feel like I wanted to play
I was tired of watching our chance slip away
Of all of us talking with nothing to say
The meaningless garbage we all “A-OKed”
I spoke in a strategy meeting today
 
I was fired in a strategy meeting today

  1.  brilliant! definitelly true story :)

  1. Here's one of mine from years ago...

    Oh, my bottom, my poor bottom!
    How many hours can you take?
    Meetings, meetings, yet more meetings,
    mold and shape you till you break.
    Lord in heaven grant this favor,
    never will I ask again,
    Let this worthless waste of effort
    end before it must begin.
