The fear of the boss
who taught us to fear the boss,
He is human, only that he can fire me,
They all talk of the boss in whispers,
talk in parables for the fear of the eared walls
Yet the boss just looks smily
Only that what is within is unknown and feared.
So the boss comes in,
He speaks rather fast, i missed most of the words
It everyday English, but when its from the boss,
It sounds more of Latin
French, i captured that, I bet he wants a french book, its in a library
So i think fast, retrieve some print and audio materials
Suddenly i can feel excessive heat, yet its raining outside
Its the fear of the boss, he seems relaxed.,
He smiles and i gladly issue the book he chooses, leaves.
In no time, my office is filled up,
All y colleagues have come to find out, its 411 time
We are on 4th floor, the boss resides on 7th floor,
The visit is rare,
What did he want? I saw the boss?
Do you know who that was?(Am three weeks old in the firm).
The fear of the boss it is
His ability to fire, or his un welcomed questions
They have taught us to fear the boss, even when he smiles,
Fear is only as deep as the mind allows, I tell myself.
I gear up, continue with my work, take a breadth
what is there to fear, he even smiled , should i still fear?
Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most
I choose to stay calm, i will form my own culture,
A fearless boss culture
