He assures you 
he's truly a consensus guy;
autocratic ways and 
schemes he just doesn't buy;

and that he's all 
out for candid consultation
that makes for true 
bottom-up communication.

       He tells you he's read 
       your group's every suggestion
       to ensure success 
       of the organization.

       But although he seems 
       open-minded, fair and kind,
       you get the feeling 
       he has long made up his mind.

Beneath his mantra 
on free-wheeling discussion
lurks the threat 
of a condition sine qua non:

you're free to put
all ideas into question,
just don't mess around 
with his final decision!
