A Fable

A Fable
Four little starlings
Sat all in a row
Up high upon the aerial
Thinking where to go

Three tweeted all together
Hatching a plan of where to fly
Yet one would not play ball
And flew off alone into the sky

He flew towards the sun
Intent that he knew best
Proud that he was his own bird
Independent of the rest

He ignored the other three
Who tweeted ‘come back here’
But Derek (we’ll call him that)
Thought ‘I’ve got this, don’t you fear’

Soaring on the wind,
He puffed himself with glee
“I’m so much better than those others
So much greater than those three!”

His ego was astonishing
His arrogance complete
Yet sadly he would not listen
Why the other three did tweet

For the sun, as he perceived it
Was not the sun at all
But a ball of fluffy ginger cat
Who became Derek’s downfall!

And in an instant with a huge pounce
Up high into the blue
Poor Derek met his comeuppance
And became this cats new chew!

So the moral of this story
Is listen to the team
For their perspective maybe the ticket
That helps you reach your dream!


If someone does a favour
Have the grace to say
How much it is applauded
In every single way

And do not take advantage
Of their kind natured will
Less stab in the back and push
Them to do much more still

And also do not analyse
What you get; what you gain
But instead think what you can give
What you can do again

And show appreciation
Give people true value
For life is mutually better
When one head becomes two

And without power imbalance
Without a rod and stick
Work in collaboration
Get on and do it quick!
