Just Cause

Just Cause


Just excuse my brevity
I'm trying to be polite
And provide some levity
While containing my delight

I will give no platitude
I know how you were hired
All I have is gratitude
That you have now been fired

I won't deign to specify
All the harm you did induce
I will only qualify
That you had no just excuse

  1. I admire your restraint. And the brief, clipped tone and rhyme make a this more effective than a rant.

    1. It's my first time trying this style. It was harder than I thought and it went through many rewrites.
