1990–2000

 

7 DEAR COLLEAGUE

Poem: Alasdair Gray © 2005

 

Congratulations! Our whole department

is glad you are dead. Great dedication

to material output, inner liason

needs breaks from time to time and dissolution

seems just the break you need. Should you return

to planning and development the situation

will certainly be reviewed but rest assured

we manage without you. Fear not!

We remain.
