In charge of: Absolutely Nothing


Absolutely Nothing
(for Mike)

He is in charge of absolutely nothing
but takes his job very seriously.

He has grown his beard specially,
combed his hair and ironed his shirt;

he strikes an important pose
behind the empty podium

ready to comment or make judgement
but there is nothing left to say

and no-one there to say it to.
He is absolutely in charge

and nothing has changed.
Ab-so-lute-ly nothing.
