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!
