The Carpet

A red carpet

All new

Smelling of plastic

And fabric

.

At a new job

With pens

All lined up in a row

Smelling of plastic

And ink

.

A problem comes up

Not understanding how to do it

Sweeping it under the carpet

.

More problems appear

All swept under the carpet

The browning carpet

Choking dust

And neglect

.

Nobody is trusting

No jobs are done

The only thing that happens

Is the blackening of a reputation

As the carpet starts to rise

.

Higher and higher

Unless the carpet is cleaned

Unless the attitude is changed

It will fall

Off the pile of thick dirt

Revealing the crumbs underneath

To harsh fire

.

Being fired

For not cleaning the carpet

Or the floor underneath

The job was not done correctly

The reputation was not maintained

So the carpet

Fell to ruin
