I am nothing.
I am nothing.
I sit.
I write.
I create.
But I don’t really exist.

I am nowhere
I am nowhere.
Significant as a shadow

I am no-one.
I am no-one.
The lowest of the low.



Makes me think that ...

Administrators play a vital part in the organisation and smooth-running of businesses throughout industry, commerce and public services. In doing it no one should ever be made to feel like this. See also Just Administration and you’ll wonder why are people being made to feel this way.
