A Clever Overseer

An overseer in a plantation
talks of techniques of management
throws off all temptation
professes modesty in a tenement
says with an all know attitude
the owners need not oversee
he would perform with gratitude
the rightful could be
anywhere they choose
as he would take care
they believed him in all moves
and he did in a way fare
slowly got control of the whole
became he the master
