When the shit hits the fan there'll be trouble
and there's only one thing left to do,
we'll all get our stories sounding consistent
and the blame will be squarely on you.

It's not that we actually dislike you
and you've not caused us any real trouble,
but someone must take all the blame for this cock-up
and they'll find your name lying in the rubble.

You're in the unfortunate position
where it's conceivable it might be your fault,
and you're senior enough in a management role
that you could have called it all to a halt.

But the proper trend in these situations
is to frantically manoeuvre away
and distance yourself from disasters you caused
and let some other unfortunate pay.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
