Topsy Turvy

Forward we step

Blight becomes might

Plight delivers insight

Light not night

Forward we step

Unknowns we trust

Address we must

Success for us


Us for success?

Must we address?

Trust we unknowns?

Step we forward?

Night not light?

Insight delivers plight?

Might becomes blight?

Step we forward?



Makes me think that ...

The topsy-turvy world of work can be a place where you sometimes don't know whether you're coming or going. Anchors and reference points can move so much you can't if your up or down. If you're going forward for backwards.
