All for the best

When jobs went to India or Vietnam,

it was never suggested we be enthused

Instead, the topic was meticulously avoided

until, down came the axe

 

But when AI emerged, threatening to discard employment

like a snotty Kleenex thrown into the gutter,

we’re to mimic the boss’s Dr. Pangloss sentiments.

As algorithms take our place,

please remember – it’s all for the best!
