“The higher you go the cooler
“The air and weather become.”
No sooner had I been a Ruler
Than I was utterly unwelcome.
“We elevated you to the Chair
“Of comfort and to Authority.”
It turned to be an electric chair
That torched me to Eternity!
“You’ll receive very fat peaks...”
Attractive package so I thought.
Ah! What deep and deadly peaks
From vultures in a drought!
“Adopt being a true Motivator
“Who, by example must lead.”
I turned out to be an Activator
Of worker indolence instead!
“Management means doing a job
“Through others; one, two or three.”
Yet, menial work bereft my snob,
All are doing work through me!
‘You must Control, you must Lead.”
How sweet power sounds to be!
Yet, en masse my toe they tread
‘Before chasing me up the tree!
“You should do all but Plan,
“And eschew deviating Course.”
I’m isolated, I am just One
On the mercy of a United Force!
The Higher you go the Cooler....
No! The Higher, the Hotter:
I’m brewed, they are the brewer
I seethe in Management’s pot!
**Management Principles construed from a different perspective!
