If You Ain’t Infected With Kaizen, Don’t Get In The Game.

Collaboration met competition and The two of them arm-wrestled. They each stood on the greenest grass And in each other’s sights, they fessed up. Rested untested like spilling the beans. No barred holds, no barriers. No stupid damn meetings. Sure, they damned the torpedoes and Then they took to the air. Dragged the future to […]

He Had A Problem With Authority And Authority Had A Problem With Him

If Fear Catches Me

  He didn’t want to be But he was, alone. Even his third man factor had gone. The wind bit his face. Dawgs on his arse. Getting was good but the good was sparse. Damning the torpedoes. Ziggin’ on the zag. Climbin’ out the box when it isn’t his bag. Barry

Son, Please Toil Diligently But Not For Those Cocksuckers.

Opportunity looks like a sinking ship. Bilge pump overtime. And salvage work, it ain’t so bad. Cleanin’ up mar-eyen. Mar-eyen? You know? This place you tend to go? And brought you everyone else there. Where you now reside, you know? So map it out then, mark your course. You are the wind, the oxen… horse. […]
