The Chairman

The chairman seeks more.

Sales, he thunders.

His belly shakes.

He lifts a finger:

we have to try harder.

Everyone, it seems.

But you.

The secretary takes notes:

the man’s a louse.

She knows there are bodies

in the bottom drawer.

Take a note: all branches –

His voice fades to her ears.

She knows what to say.

It’s what she always says.

Yes, Sir

and wishes him dead,

belly down in vitriol

  1. Brings back many a meeting to mind! Lovely closing sentiment, John. The reality of it, that suppressed rage at other’s so-called righteous rage!
