Team Leader

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #275

Words:  keys, pattern, easy, work, drop, righteous, feed, lies, flat, call, ends, hold

He holds the key
to easy work,
now that he’s attained
a supervisor spot.
A pattern emerges,
he urges his team on
with flattery–feeds
them lies cloaked
in honey. Calls on them
to tackle tasks, lets
them bask in his righteous
praise of their gifts.
Shifts all his duties into
his team’s capable hands.
When a project falls flat
in the end, his hands are clean.
If his team scores a win,
he accepts all accolades
for a job well done–by him.
Key remains  secured,
unless lock is changed.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
