Watching the Ripples Radiate.
Author: marshalg

Chapter 136
Communication Nexus


Bad communication 

Is the scourge of the world,

Interactive skills, bizarre at best,

Are twisted, bent and curled.

Cancerous perceptions

With an eloquence extreme

Are as rare as fragile virgins

In a sea of passion’s cream.


Messages delivered

In verbal speech exchange,

Interpretive dilemmas

Intermittent on every page.

Disruptive diversions

Occur from time to time

But disdain for rules is punished

By a pain that fits the crime.


Feedback tells the story straight

Integrity is low,

When interaction deteriorates

And tolerances go.

Networking bankruptcy

Is globally compound

And the malady contagious

And malignancy profound.


Diplomatic overtures

Are wasted in this case,

Superior subordinates,

Enigmatic, in their place,

Hold sway over standards

Adopted near and far

And wayward phraseology

Is implicitly ajar.


For a speedy resolution

Lateral thinking is required,

Creative application

So imaginatively wired

To maximize the profits

And minimize the waste,

And to spread the dire instructions

With a mortal threat in place.


Improvement will be visionary

Resentment will decline,

Imaginative writing

Will appear like summer wine.

Eloquent discourse

Shall sprout about like herbs

And overtures of understanding

Will emanate from faceless words.
