The Promotion

Heavy smoke clears from the battlefield.
Wisps of grey powder swirl towards oblivion.
The acrid stench grips the air as if
hanging on for dear life.

A young man steps forward in a freshly ironed suit.
The practiced smile on his face is meant to comfort
the flailing men who litter the cubicles
hanging on for dear life.
