DON’T WAIT

You pushed so hard
But, waited too long
So sure you were needed
But, you were so wrong.

The coffee …. the jitters
The pain in your gut
Though you looked quite tattered
You always showed up.

The contrast so clear
She was young and alert
So polished, she shined
She stood out at work.

Without hesitation
Quite comfortably
They made a decision
Unanimously.

New kid on the block
You were demoted
They all agreed
They decided…they voted.

No choice in the matter
Time to retire
She was loaded for bear
Best to quit….don’t get fired.

She had an agenda
She knew what to do
To get what she wanted
To get rid of you.
