last rites

the broken was, the present is,
the way is clear, this is the biz,
we brought consultants in, and they
said, "though no change, we need to pay"

the bill was served, the sum was raised,
their great ideas received and praised,
the bell is ringing, champagne pours,
they drove away, we closed the doors
