the office flood

you get a sinking feeling
while wading down this hall
watching ceiling tiles crack
as one by one they fall

they told us “not to worry”
“it’s just a tiny leak”
but much like the Titanic
the news has since turned bleak

asbestos swims beside us
lights flicker in the cold
but we can always find our way
by sniffing trails of mold

and while it’s disconcerting
to see our chairs afloat
we realized rather quickly
they’d help us build a boat

now armed with our umbrellas
we’ll rescue two of each
from every key department
remaining within reach

we, the chosen few, shall live
to tell of indoor rain
and help rebuild the company
that drives us all insane.
