Farewell Dear Lobster

Farewell dear lobster; your services
no longer required. 

Run along now
with your steak and dancing
in the twilight, overlooking the Hindu Kush.

Our sights are set already –
reducing costs. 

A latte and
your wellbeing
no longer de rigueur.

Haircuts will continue as normal.
