Mistress Minute book


Job description: feeder of bureaucracy
Groomer of red tape and technicality
Writer of the dull, gold-letter burgundy books
Not even corporate accountants want to read

I won’t perch long on this branch
Just enough to gather my breath
Wait out the storm
I’ll spread my wings just in time
To avoid the bolts of lightning
From the pedantic gods of regulation.

Just think of it as a lesson in how not to write. ;)

wow, I can so relate to this one. How many times did I update those pointless minute books and think my brain, my talents, and paper, time were all being watested.
This makes me dream of a brighter future.
