MISTAKEN COMPLAINT


MISTAKEN COMPLAINT

 

She liked his poetry once,

But it had been quite a while…

She held ‘gainst him no affronts

And in fact liked his style.

-

He sought a colleague of her’s

To act as a go-between…

To ask the question that he most feared,

Was it he that had done the wrong thing?

-

He knew complaints among workers

Are not always handled direct…

Sometimes they go through “channels”,

For anything deemed suspect.

-

An entry in the HR Inbox

He assumed probably was from her…

So relieved to hear it wasn’t,

A positive note he’d prefer.

-

So he has her permission for sharing

His gift with another dear soul…

Like the one who helped him clear the air,

He hoped she wouldn’t find his verse droll!
