Haiku 1.America created

And break from the weight of, “I
Love how strong you are.”

Better have something to offer at the table
like the table,
the meeting snacks,
the business solutions,
the data to support your claim.
Better be able to save us from ourselves
correcting our errors from the shadows,
told to take no credit.
You’re better off behind the scenes, they say.
Better be ready to clean that glass ceiling when you get stuck under it.
When you get them what they wanted,
you better be ready to do more
Play your part
til they recognize your position
Bet on Her, they’ll say
And they will be right every time.
