Boss and Bill

In a Boss-pleasing culture, no one wants to see or talk about the possible pitfalls in a self-promoting passion. Especially when the momentum is in one direction… then there are a lot of people whose goal is to jump in into the momentum, hoping to be a part of the winning glory.

Boss and Bill, went up the hill
To fetch a pail of big fat Bonus
Bill said what pleased the Boss
Boss heard nothing but what Bill said

Boss heard nothing else either
Blinded to the spots and pitfalls
Bill fell down and broke his crown
Boss and All came tumbling after

All were left to mend their crowns
While Bill went on to a higher post
Boss moved on to a new corporate
Repeat,
Boss and Bob went up the hill
To fetch a pail of big fat bonus
