AT&T Cut 18,000 Jobs Last Month

18,000 jobs, at AT&T, trimmed like an X-mas tree
AT&T frees (their analysts pleased) thousands of salaries
Jobs trickle below, their wages now low, in a trickle-down flow
5 years in a row, on to Mexico, pine needles swept away
And this is how we, at AT&T, enjoy diversity
