'Window' Friendly - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

One's competence and excellence,
To accept...
Is difficult for those,
Seeking preferences to be met.
With a doing to then,
Select another who looks the part.
And expect competence and excellence,
To develop with hope and lots of tolerance.

'Your credentials are superb. However,
We do find you to be over qualified.
And it has been determined,
Someone else to be...well...
Let's say, more 'window' friendly.
If you catch 'my' drift. And this decision made,
Fits perfectly to satisfy,
Our current 'demographic' process.'

~What's 'democratic' about that? ~

'No. Demographic.
It's like...
Why turn up the heat,
When 'clients' are comfortable.
But...
One never knows,
That 'climate' may one day change.'
