Don't Let Your Manager Pester You At Work

Dear friend,
Don't let your manager
pester you at work

Your manager-he maybe
So what?

The proud kind-he maybe
ordering you around the
So what?

The serious one-he maybe
claiming for recognition
So what?

So be aware of
His too many demands
without proper
His wry smile to
trap you to
work for his own
And for him alone
His stubbornness at your practical suggestion
His ' as soon as possible' attitude towards
At the expense of your
His too many impatient
His too indifferent
schemes to
trap you to
work like a

How demanding can he get!

So beware
Dear friend,
Don't let your manager
pester you at work

Better yourself-work for another
person when possible.
