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!
