The one who never says “no”,
Even if facts are not known.

The one who always says “yes”,
Without thinking of its fuss.

The one who is a perfect in copying,
Poking nose all around and blabbering.

The one who keeps updated information,
On every hook and corner of workstation.

The one who dreams of big credentials,
While stepping on others potential.

The one who is afraid to walk alone,
Likes to stay in a blissful bond.

The one who sticks as a chewing gum,
And Head back when situations go numb.

The one who is more annoying,
And you feel like disowning.

The one who speaks to flatter,
And can do it with much butter.

The one who portrays things nicely,
Even if job is done poorly.

The one who takes advantage,
Mending situations in outrage.

The one who wishes to shine,
By singing praises for poor wine.

The one who likes bosses every initiative,
Even if team wonders what so creative.

Did you guess such person?
The one found in every season.

  1. I know all of these--don't we all--sometimes all in the same person. I think what's funny is seeing them all laid out in detail. And of course, ultimately we have to laugh and recognize a little of it in ourselves. Thanks for posting!
