Secret Element to Success by Bob Atkinson

Secret Element to Success
(c)2012 Bob Atkinson
tried and true methods
seem more than they appear
taking with them attention
away from that sincere

tantalizing as they glisten
they mean not all they show
stabs the green banana
you know where that goes

first and fundamental
to this worthy prize
comes attention to the deed
that masters as it flies

a quick and dirty profit
from screwing all your friends
returns those favors many times
as they peel off your top skin

same goes with those you
don't really know so well
always returned, the favor
good or bad with interest paid

focus, lately, diverted to
what works, no matter how
it fits into the moral scheme
describing our human shell

can we be kind to others
or, do others not matter much
do we wish to see ourselves
as people, or merely puppets
