(Early morning musings)

Let's promote you,
Give you a new title,
Corner office, and more work,
But pay you the same salary
Because, it's


For us to watch you
Attempt to handle
More on your plate.

Who's going to help you
Eat all of that anyway?

While we're at it,
Let's have you train
A few underlings,
Give them your knowledge,
So they'll shine brighter
And longer and

One Day

Replace you.

We're having a ball at
This, so why don't we
Keep you pigeon-holed,
Deny you paid-time off,
But demand


Overtime every other Friday?

Isn't this fun?

No. Oh, you don't think so?

But, it’s just so convenient.

A fly on the wall, presumably
Smarter than the big wigs
In the room comes out of hiding
And says,

"Convenient for whom?"
