Forty Years in the Trenches

When I started my agency
my first goal was to make as much
as I paid my employee. As such,
I worked harder, no complacency.
I learned clichés like, "bottom line"
and "the buck stops here"
go with the title, nothing to fear,
"putting out fires", the daily grind.
But for the freedom to soar, akin
to the eagle's flight, I'd do it again.
