A Squeaking Wheel - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A squeaking wheel,
Doesn't always get the attention.
A prevention is mentioned to avoid this,
With intention!

Those who perceive they will be embarrassed,
With an harassment that may take place.
When they are confronted face to face.
Will do the best they can to oil that squeak,
Before that wheel gets an opportunity to roll.

And there is nothing like an interrupted agenda,
That has been scheduled to move along...
With no defects to detect,
By an unexpected 'noise'.
