We traversed the same road, same time
the ride not always so smooth.
one warned the other, of an oncoming ditch
and managed to save many a glitch.
But we had to bid goodbye-
It was only a trip, my workplace friend!
We shared the latest news
analysed all possible views
a shared background in the past-
but here, camaraderie did not last.
we had to disagree in the end.
it was only a perspective, my friend!
We are judged by the company we keep
elite club memberships do matter.
image counts, more so does my boss
he did not like our chatter-
we ratted on each other.
it was boss management, my friend!
You asked questions, I answered
sharing my blues, the grapevine too-
it was so easy to nail and frame
to earn some points, and lucrative glue
the soil was not conducive to growth
it needed trust and loyalty, my friend!
