The Mills of Corporate (A pantoum for the phantoms)

The mills of corporate grind exceeding small.
People as substantive as shadows,
In the spotlight, stretching tall,
In obscurity, shrinking down.

People as substantive as shadows.
How much does their effort count?
In obscurity, shrinking down,
Woe to those who seek creativity.

How much does their effort count?
Woe to those who seek substance.
Woe to those who seek creativity.
Shadows move without their own form.

Woe to those who seek substance,
In the spotlight, stretching tall,
Shadows move without their own form.
The mills of corporate grind exceeding small.

Artist's Description

Corporate culture can be stultifying and crush creativity. There are always exceptions, but the rule is “follow the rules”. Thoughts on one of those working days when the corporate entity felt like a crushing weight on individuality.
