Calling all talented and aggressive people there’s a place for you in our organization

the effusive smile
that greets with impressive handshakes
crushes more than the hand
polished shoes of gleaming cold death
capped fangs of the coiffed predators
button down shirts and minds
amidst the chattering of back stabbing baboons
clustered on the tree
climbing ever higher
ignoring the screams of the fallen
too terrorized of their own shameful tumble
Remember
as they say we only get one chance in life
so
kill with a smile
or you’ll end up on the cold bathroom tile
subject of hushed headlines
created by humility stricken obituary writers
with a country week end on their mind
even before the flowers have wilted
