Business busy-ness what it’s about

Wonderful daycare sometimes a loud shout

Long task lists filled with to do’s

Arena for creativity with it’s own taboos


A place to act out competitive fire

Sometimes context for service that’s higher

Our dominant social institution

For family and religion a substitution


In business we express personal art

Providing context and fresh start

Exercise all parts of our brain

Exploring new business terrain


For personal drama a great stage

Charm seduction competence rage

A form of theatre in which you learn

Realize dreams while you earn


Work occupies so much of life

Work family sibling husband wife

Colleagues become trusted friends

Their concerns satisfaction become ends


Is work an opportunity to learn and collaborate or just a place to make money?

What about work as service – how do you view that?
