Disadvantaged

Many complained Joe micromanaged

Some even called him “disadvantaged”

     The devil in the details

     Is the truth that tips the scales

Revealing who is less advantaged


Based on Albert Einstein’s quote –
“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”


Written April 15, 2015, for John Freeman's Einstein Quotes Contest.
Welcome back, John :D

I always thought Joe micromanaged far too much as well...I even had a word with him about it but he totally ignored me! Personally, I think he's in denial...I hope this sage advice of yours set him straight! As for your rhyming of four syllable words? WOW...BIG congrats my friend! - Tim

good one, CArolyn. I can't wait for the weekend to try this one out. That was a true story about one of my first crushes if you did not see my reply to you. A one night date that will last in my mind forever.
