Moving Through Moments

From the book:

Jostling for Position

It’s a dangerous business

putting too many hens

in the hen house

One or two get singled out

pecked into submission

by the insecure majority

There’s rules you know

hierarchy and such

You must file into the

conga line and follow

Blindly without question

Strutting around exactly

like the other bitches

And don’t you dare

pay any compliments

It’s best not to ruffle

any feathers
