Loud and Proud
Meeting with forty-three women
Six at each table
An extra squeezed in to one.
I always sit by the loudest and proudest
The most egotistical
The one who always gladly shouts out every answer
Does not count the wrong ones.
Even if we laugh
Loud and proud at another table
Selects herself to be spokesperson
Suddenly realizes she has done the task incorrectly
Turns on a co-worker and yells
“YOU SAT THERE AND WATCHED ME DO THIS ALL WRONG!”
Not once, but twice. Screamer's face turns tomato.
I was laughing flat out
Loud and proud
Great for any meeting
