Make Sure That The Coast Is Clear 

 

An original poem by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

We take courses with care,

 

Designed to inform us,

 

How things work, and how to think right.

 

 

But forces are out there,

 

Some are enormous,

 

But the majority are only slight.

 

So make sure that the coast is clear.

 

 

CHORUS

 

If others want the same thing as you,

 

But feel that they're more deserving.

 

You'll be surprised what they might do,

 

In the interest of power preserving.

 

So make sure that the coast is clear.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

It's always smart to inquire,

 

About the plans of your peers.

 

Don't get such info second hand.

 

 

Knowing their desires,

 

Involves leading engineers,

 

Or that a job in QC is planned,

 

Helps make sure that the coast is clear.

 

 

CHORUS

 

If others want the same thing as you,

 

But feel that they're more deserving.

 

You'll be surprised what they might do,

 

In the interest of power preserving.

 

So make sure that the coast is clear.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Don't assume that your boss,

 

Is of a single mind,

 

With you, regarding your future.

 

 

You'll be at quite a loss,

 

If you one day find,

 

She'd rather you shovel manure.

 

So make sure that the coast is clear.

 

 

CHORUS

 

If others want the same thing as you,

 

But feel that they're more deserving.

 

You'll be surprised what they might do,

 

In the interest of power preserving.

 

So make sure that the coast is clear.

 

 

The End.
