Glass Ceiling Gala
The final policy stipulation in Johnny Come Lately
noted that judiciousness was feared—a warm egg
placed delicately in a mouth.
Banks ran elsewhere. The Euro Zone was plagued
by kindergarten-like work environments.
Your office remained a toy train. Climb a ladder
and get a lemon. Whimsy can step aside
to let production lead. Happy and ladylike.
Smart little win-win.
