MASTERMIND

MASTERMIND

A Poem by rutherford

The media love an expert

who has to be known

as a guru

and if you're lucky

you'll move on

to a more official position

as Czar

of one thing or another.

 

Then there is the more sinister career path

starting as a strongman

(but no strongwoman?)

who can work their way up to kingpin

but they both answer to the mastermind.

great piece, rutherford...reminds us to keep our ego at the door.
