My boss is angry

"Ooopsss, I overheard you, sorry

Did you get divorced?"

Not an answer...

I'm asking louder:


is there anything

I can do for you?"

"Nothing at all,

Can you please make a call...

...but wait! What did you just tell me?

That you overheard me?"

His face turns into mad

Like a fierce dragon

Who's ready to burn my head down

I wish I hadn't been that curious before,

And I would've just walked out the damn door...

But here we go...

Staring at his wrathful eyes.

I know it's over for me

No excuses

Whatever I say till now

Is against myself

He's gonna fire me...

In the last minute
I'm writing it

    When tender hearts, curious ears, become the agent of our greater fears.

  • Curiosity got the cat fired! Or something like that. I have learned to just keep my head down and pretend I hear nothing! Nice job, Anna.

  • Good one Anna.
