Misery loves (my) company: A Friday haiku by J. Yoshida, Esq.

Awash in pink sea,
Workers in new uniform,
Banzai off a cliff.
//
Explanation: Today the Nihon Keizai Shimbun leaked that my company is laying off 10,000 employees! Can’t help but wonder how many could have been saved, say by not changing the uniforms for the entire workforce. And I’m sure that the 10,000 that get the axe will be thrilled to have learned their fate from a newspaper!
