The Council of the Gods, by Kit Wright

Lay no blame. Have pity.
Put your fingers in the wounds of the Committee.

They never reached your item.
Disputing Item One ad infinitum.

Lay no blame. Be tender.
The retrospective start of the agenda.

Was all they managed treating.
Consider, pray, the feeling of the meeting.

(They felt awful). Not surprising
They never came to matters not arising.

From Matters Arising:
Who took the chair when the standing committee last sat?
Who kept the minutes for hours and hours and hours?
Who tabled the motion,
Who motioned the table
Whereat
The standing committee
Sat?
Have pity.
Put your fingers in the wounds of the committee.

The gods have not been sleeping.
All night they sat, in grief and boredom, weeping.
