Swing the Sledge

“We are family”
Sing it sisters
For it is true that you were

Are.

I’ve tired of those not blood
Claiming
That our professional responsibilities
Somehow mimic familial realities
I’ve begun dismissing the
Rhetoric
That we are all in this together
It’s all
Bunk

In my family
If someone is threatened
We band together against the
Threat
In my family
When someone is suffering
We provide comfort to relieve the
Suffering
We don’t circle the wagons
Leaving the family out with
Danger

Management by cliche is
Insulting
Leadership by limerick is
Laughable
Group development through individualism is
Disingenuous

I want to know where I stand
Not because of what a charlatan says
But because of what a MAN does
You want to call me family
You want us on the same side
Then act like my family
For we stand together
