Brain box

Yes! You have to think out of the box 
But you don't have to lose your brain box 
(which is more than a gear box or a black box) 
because of your brave boss, 
(even when he holds an axe). 
Its lost would cost you more than an ox. 
Its an evidence of sear laxity
Its dividend is with influx of max pain
which wax stronger than flax
It doesn't count whether you are a fan of 
fox news, drive Toyota hillux, use fax or bathe with lux soap.
You don't need to pay tax to play a sax.

    It's people like you that make me proud of my country.Your poem really got the drift.If I equate you to Shakespear;then I am just putting round pegs on round holes.'Ekushe'

    I appreciate all the 'x', as a poem I didn't feel you tooks us anywhere, seemed a bit random, not my cup of tea.
