Ah! a little advice for the youth:
Be careful how you communicate
In the office if you are lucky enough to
Be in regular employment.
Sometimes you may be involved in
Informal conversations that seem
To gag your boss.
Some may say she or he has a pot-belly or
An ugly face; others may refer to some
Other obsession of him or her.
Be sure not to make any remark.
For the “birds” will hear your remark
And somehow, exclusively, report what you said.
All other gossips will mysteriously be left out.
I am speaking from experience.
Whatever you do, socialize, listen more,
But say nothing.
