perhaps we broke the law

meetingwe sit in awkward
silence since
they called us to assemble
or whisper to our cohorts
as we fidget
and we tremble
the company is
on the brink
of greatness or disaster
this ship is either sinking
or it’s getting
a new master
perhaps there’s been
a buyout
perhaps we broke the law
perhaps there’s
something coming
that no single soul foresaw
perhaps we’re relocating
be still, my heart, be still,
or maybe this is,
yes it is,
another safety  drill
