Another Swing of the Pendulum - Poem 19

Another wonderful visual prompt from Bud the Teacher's blog. This one was an empty meeting room with a filled chalk board. After yet another week of state testing, though, I was feeling a bit jaded today. 

Empty room -
Empty words deface the board

Decisions made by those
With no real understanding of the
Day to day existence of those
Living in the trenches

They smiled
Swaggered and strutted
Buzz words swarming

New directives
New incentives
New penalties

Another swing
of the pendulum

But who will really pay?
