The Bosses Son

you may try to make us feel inferior strutting around with head held high and mighty i wonder is it for our sake or just to cover up thy own inadequacy fumbling your way around the factory floor the bosses son soon to elevate to greater roles i remember you on your first day the rawest of incumbents silver spoon still protruding from your mouth i gave you the strength needed taught you everything now I sit across from you your eyes never to meet mine no apology when handing the redundancy paper that says goodbye. © Harry J Horsman 2021

Hello Harry … we always reckoned the bosses got the job because they weren’t capable to work on the floor. Your verse took me back to some of these blokes Harry - Lindsay

Congratulations on poem of the day Harry. I’ve had a few bosses like that who’d strut round like peacocks thinking they were better than those doing all the work... Belle
