“Bossyboots”

Was the attitude a byproduct of the title?
'Manager' does not make you important.
Your subscription to Twice does 
Not make you cognoscente.

Your febricity will not infect 
Those survivng on paltry hours.
With staid countenance we watch your
Extravagant attempts to motivate 'the team.'

We can smell the antiseptic script you read from.

“Get One’s Thinking Cap On”

The tailored crises of this
Short handed world is not accidental. 

It's naive to place blame on the tepid or 
The truculent. The nasty and  
The nice must come to grips. 

The fat years are gone.   
The lean years are to come.

“Hypocorism”

My shadowed memories differ
From oppressive realities.  I can't
Eliminate the necessitity to create
Luxuriant fictions.

I don't recall when we first met.
Unhoped for loved at first sight? I imagine
You working the room with 
Unstrained beauty.

“Providence”

A contagion exacerbated the dissolution.
One can't undo the dishonsety but
One can do the next best thing.

Be watchful for false applause and
Joyful jeers.  This kind of knavery flies a 
Special kind of pennant.

“Conceited”

You smile words that are 
Boorish, ostentatious, and whimsical
To explain it all away.

Your desire to sanitize through language
Is ineffectual and unmanageable.
I see through your malefic designs.

Words do not make one saintly.
The beatific are incorporeal.
