The Better Way

by Dan Campion

“Better.com CEO apologizes after laying off 900 employees via Zoom call”

The “better” way is really “best”
When market movements say divest:
Don’t sit (so awkward!) in a room
With stiffs recruited in a boom—
Just disconnect their link to Zoom.
(A dot-com CEO is wise,
Pro forma, to apologize.)
