Cold Autumnal Light

Today a gusty wind blows,
  and the cold autumnal light falls upon a diminished world.
A smoothly running team is released,
  and its members seek new livelihoods.
Bankruptcy court looms, customers are disappointed,
   equipment decays, biochips age.
Does anyone wish to pick up the pieces?

Today also this blog is released from its corporate duties. It will continue as a personal effort to... well, we don't exactly know. It, too, is slightly shocked at yesterday's turn of events. It will eventually find its new voice, as will we all.

As with all such things, they end inauspiciously. I loved the poem.

Thanks for 5 great years Smashed!

Well the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more.
It's when life looks like easy street there is danger at your door.
