Tribute to a laid off analyst

Every comp you make,
And pitch you bake,
Every model you break,
Every staffing you take,
I'll be watching you…

Every in-office day,
And every protected Saturday,
Every night you stayed,
Every hour you gave,
I'll be missing you…

Since you got laid off, I've been lost without a trace,
I talk to new AN1s, can only see your face,
You've been let go, but you won't be replaced,
I feel so cold, it feels so late,
I wipe off my tears, as bonuses are only weeks away
