Here for the Journey

Everything changes and I’m changing too

Its out with the old and in with the new
What you take for granted is thrown in the bin
No experience needed just tick boxes filled in

If you’ve done the right courses and speak the right phrase
And you’re glad of the work and won’t ask for a raise
And your life won’t impinge on the long working day
We’ll take you as long as you do things our way

Gone are the days when experienced folk
Taught the ropes to the young – now they think you’re a joke
There’s no room for the things that you know anymore
Like you they’re irrelevant – they’ll show you the door

But you watch as the old circle makes one more turn
And you wonder how long it will take them to learn
The mistakes you corrected on the journey you made
Just come round again as through porridge they wade

What happened to wisdom, insight, intuition
When all that you need is a cost saving mission
Quality Assured – at least on paper they say
But of course - in reality that isn’t the way

So I sit by my telly and I hear the man say
Things will get better if you do things my way
And I wonder if someone has bothered to ask
Does ANYONE have experience to finish this task
