The man is by nature

cautious

has never built

created a thing

in his life

he knows what he knows

& holds himself tight to that

which does not stop

his criticism of those

who tried

sometimes failed

& tried again

until they did

what they needed to do

thankfully

he’d not gained promotion

because these are the people

who kill the world

& while you don’t want

to disturb the man

you do want to shake him up

shift

that attachment to a safe life

he wants it

you feel it

by how he likes what

you do

wants to be part

of your life

even if

the unending critique

gets hard to take

from a fella

that won’t

can’t

do
