Merck layoffs inspire poets to versify

Curious what one laid-off Merck rep thinks about the company's latest cost-cutting move? He (or she) is not calling it "Plan to Win" as Merck is, that's for sure. No, the wounded one waxed poetical on CafePharma's company board: "'Twas the night before layoffs and all through the house," is how the tale of woe begins. Our favorite stanza? "Oh it was a nice run, Merck once had great style/But then along came the results of the Enhance Trial/I thought a nice long career was gonna be mine/Now I'm riding my bike to the unemployment line."
