Going out of way to meet and greet

that super performance called networking.

My pitch is ready, and tie knotted neat

but the toughest task is executing.


I imagine my boss abusing me,

wipe out all thoughts of rebellion

his cold, hard expression smiles with glee

Such a maniac, one in zillion.


Driven by fear, expecting success

corporate irony, fancy labels

whims rotating around same axis

power expressed in loud decibels


Stock markets drive a business sound

delinked from reality on ground.
