Layoff As Bowel Movement
a: Layoff ~
b: an organizational bowel movement
What: The body, the organization, feeds on the emotional energy of the money it takes in and the people in the organization. The employees can be consumed as psychic sustenance for the leadership. But as with all living things, they body needs to purge. Thus the layoffs. The people who have been psychically digested and can no longer provide emotions energy for the leadership class, are shit out of the system in a process called layoff.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
