A song lyric about job loss, set to the tune of "Wake Me Up When September Ends"
         Wake Me Up When the Changes End


         We grow up, we grow out,
         Nothing's sure, we learn to doubt,
         Wake me up when the changes end.

         Projects come and buildings go,
         Memory preserves the show,
         Wake me up when the crisis ends.

         Here comes a change again,
         Forcing a fresh start,
         Here comes the pain again
         Of learning a new part.

         Poor decisions may not last,
         Management can flame out fast,
         Wake me up when the outsource ends.

         Planes arrive and planes depart,
         It's people that make this an art,
         Wake me up when the layoff ends.

         Here comes a change again,
         Forcing a fresh start,
         Here comes the pain again
         Of learning a new part.

         30 years has come and gone,
         I didn't think I'd last this long,
         Wake me up when the changes end.


         Terrence G. Fisher 2016
