IBMC #8 : Corporate Ladder

So, I’ve been asked to pick a nursery rhyme and make a new interpretation of it. I choose – ‘Ten in the Bed’. This is a simple number song which introduces toddlers to numbers and counting.

 Ten

There were ten in the bed

And the little one said, ‘Roll over, roll over!’ 

So they all rolled over and one fell out.

Nine

There were nine in the bed

And the little one said, ‘Roll over, roll over!’

So they all rolled over and one fell out.

And so on… till

There was one in the bed

and the little one said, ‘I’m lonely!’

 

And here’s my version of the rhyme:

Ten!

Corporate ladder by ‘Ed Massey’

There were ten on the ladder

And the ambitious one said,

Pull the top one, pull the top one!

So they all pulled him

And he fell down…

 

Nine!

There were nine on the ladder

And the ambitious one said,

Pull the top one, pull the top one!

So they all pulled him

And he fell down…

 

 

And so it goes on… until…

One!

There was one on the ladder

And the ambitious one said,

“I’m lonely!!”

 

-Because, Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.

By the way, if the image of above life sized ‘Corporate Ladder’ intrigues you like it did to me, do read its history here, its really interesting!

  1. It’s always lonely at the top
    When you fall down
    You break your neck
    Higher you rise
    Mightier is the fall
    And oh my,
    What a wreck
    Do you make
    But
    .
    .
    .
    .
    The view must be
    Beautiful from the top
    So what the heck ¡
