Epitaphs for Corporate Persons

We had so much money
We built things no one wanted

We would shit in your hat
and call it a banquet.

We recognized people for years of service
right before we took them out and had them shot

Our people were our most valuable asset.
That line still gets a laugh.

The feast was spread before us.
Why didn’t we let everybody eat?

–Burl Whitman
