The Angernaut Management

By Dominic Loise

The Angernaut Management steered for the siren calls
raging rocks clashed together in the office pool 
not keeping the ship steady while the pigs ran wild 
as long as the bacon was brought in
swatting away morsels of truth, they picked and harped
blind to any vision other than their 20/20 hindsight 
never learning to stop and wait for calmer seas
losing others overboard, waterlogged for decades 
clinging to life rafts in the wake of past tempests till 
we stopped circling the waters of that odd odyssey 
and rowed away from The Golden Fleece 
that we could have made any difference 
finally pulling up our anchors to sail on
