Walking a Tightrope

She always thought she
Walked a tight rope be-
Tween management and
Labor in her occupation
As the senior tight-rope-
Walker in the corporation
And that was the case
Except that, if truth be
Told, she, in her heart
Of hearts, always support-
Ed the cause of those who
Worked in the warehouse
And on the production
Line and that, now in
Refreshing, retrospective
Retirement, brought her
More satisfaction than
Anything else she ever
Did besides the artwork
That she now does with-
Out any management and
Labor relations issues
Or conflicts except the
Conflict within herself
About which colored
Piece of fabric to use.
