RIVER FLOWS WFW

WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY are provided by River DRIFTING THROUGH LIFE this month.  We were given two sets for words to choose from and one short phrase.  I picked the first set of words and one phrase.  Good selections River

Be sure and read the other stories and poems, etc. written for this week either on the writer's blog or posted on River's or Elephant Child's .


Copious
Executive
Remember
Question
Undrinkable
Optimum

and

but it was never enough’



The Boss by Granny Annie

Finally she was the newly
Appointed executive.
Copious amounts of advice
Caused her to become reflective.

Now all she could remember
Were the times before stress
Causing her to constantly
Hope and pray for less.

Why did she invite each
Subordinate for a suggestion?
Looking at one idea
Simply raised another question.

Some expected her to
Repair problems unthinkable.
How could she fix water
That was totally undrinkable?

This optimum job position
Had only made her extremely tired.
She looked around the group
And said. “you are all fired”.

Reaching that glass ceiling
Had been extremely tough.
She wanted to have her way
'but it was never enough'
