Stench of burnt sugar permeated the kitchen,
Making the smoke detector chime in with its opinion on the situation.
Everyone came running in to see what happened.
Lee just shrugged and put the butter away in the fridge.
Looks like they would have to settle for plain ice cream, and that just stinks!
There is so much you can’t do by yourself
Others are needed to make it happen
Getting your tribe on board might not be easy
Everyone might have different opinions or a different way to do it
That’s when you need to realize we are all in this
Here is where we need to work extra hard listening and not attacking
Enabling the collective to try and fail as we look towards success
Realizing this is why in these tough times we need to stick…
Counting the pennies of each minute
Every one of them needed to be pried out of his arthritic hands
Never once did he give out his opinion easily
Two pieces of precious copper seemed two too many
So he hoarded his moments, his thoughts his treasure trove
