Nepotism

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Nepotism

Nepotism

Nephew, what are you doing?

No education? Don't worry, I do nepotism

Just come inside, we are family I Know

I will give you a job even though you are a bit slow

Don't worry about Josh, I know he has been here a long time

But that doesn't stop you from supervising that guy

I am the boss, I can do whatever I want

I may be hated later, but that is part of life task

I love nepotism, it is the air I breath

I will hire my friend even if she cannot read


Hey, thanks for your vote, I needed that to win

Now screw who is qualified, give me nepotism

Np one will know how this office is run

We'll be so far in greens like a farmers glove

Come have a drink with me my political pal, it matters not what you know

But be assure that it matters a lot who you know

Just remember that you owe me a big favor

I gave you this big job even though you have no paper


So come now let us ruin the economy together

My faithful nepotistic brother forever.

I think we see nepotism in many areas.
