With apologies to Herbert Read’s The Happy Warrior - and a stab at Peter F Drucker’s The Practice of Management
The Happy Manager
© Chris Port, 12th June 2012
His line chart shows a downward trend,
His white hands clench a platinum pen,
His pursing lips sip a promotion,
His sly eyes search for wounded men.
He cannot think.
Bosses’ anal juice
Dribbles down his Armani jacket.
I saw him cut
And cut again
A well-liked friend.
This is the happy manager,
This is he…
