a good fox learns to stalk his live prey.
since we are the smallest within the forests,
we have to use tricks and cleverness to succeed.
i’ve learned how some of the biggest bitches operate.
if you observe them carefully,
they will show you glimpses into who their triggers.
a stroke of the hair
the swallow when in an uncomfortable moment
the glancing to the side when they’re lying
i decided to try something on my boss today…
i was forewarned by my allies that she loves reverse psychology.
she tried it with me yesterday.
she wanted me to go home so she could set me up.
been there in the past; learned that lesson already.
she came up to me and was like:
“SO how are you feeling?!”
“i’m feeling better…”
…but before she could turn around,
“i want to thank you for being so concerned about my well being yesterday.
i felt relieved when you were adamant about sending me home.
i really enjoying working under you because you really care.”
something along those lines,
but i put a little more frosting on the shit cake.
her face lost color like:
she started stuttering and blabbering.
that told me all i needed to know.
i played her little childish games back at her.
i touched up my resume later on that day.
