Poetry corner : “calling all talented and aggressive people”

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

the effusive smile
that greets with heavy impressive handshakes
crushes more than the hand
polished shoes gleaming of cold death
capped fangs of the coiffed predators
button down shirts and minds
amidst the chattering of backstabbing baboons
clustered on the tree
climbing even higher
ignoring the screams of the falling
too terrorized by their own shameful tumble

as they tell us we only get one chance at life
kill with a smile
or you’ll end up on the cold bathroom tile
subject to hushed headlines
created by humility stricken obituary writers
with a country week-end
on their mind
even before the flowers have wilted
