A Limerick for Family Business
Updated: Dec 24, 2019
There once was a girl who was sired
By a man then by whom she was hired
To turn him around
Make his company sound
Yet one day she found herself fired.
She thought she was doing it right
But when it gets hot in the fight
No matter the season
Heart always trumps reason
And suddenly she saw the light.
She acted with all good intention
All focus on growing his pension
She did it better
But he didn’t let her
‘Cuz he couldn’t stand all the tension.
It’s partnership he sought as leader
And he didn’t care that he’d need her
He lost his trust
Fire her he must
E’en kin didn’t change how he’d treat her.
The lesson is true at all ages
Particularly so in late stages
Think “social awareness!”
It’s not about “fairness”
As soon as you witness the rages.
