Response to the Autocrat

by John D. Evans

I'm not going to lose my job

I'm not going to jeopardize my job

By being "disrespectful"

Or "insubordinate"

I will ask for permission

To speak candidly

Frankly and freely

I will explain to the fearless one

That respect is important

That consideration is important

That professionalism and

Kindness are important

That asking sometimes and

Not demanding is important

I will move in closer and say

We perform better when we are inspired

Does your autocracy inspire?
