Feel Let Down

a simple suggestion
takes an ugly turn.

Hearing about
the arrogance
of a subordinate,

I persuade
the one at the helm
to tame the shrew.

The chief
reprimands him
in a mild way.

The receiver
retorts aloud
with impudence.

Hell breaks out,
The chief loses

He stares at me
blames me for
the mishap.

The evening becomes
unpleasant. I being
cursed all the time.
