“The LinkedIn Love Letter…”
So LinkedIn is the most boring of the social platforms?
Why in the world, businesswoman, must that be?
You’ve been looking for a job, consumers, or funders
But it’s Pamper-Her-Friday—may I pamper thee?
The old canard: Business and pleasure shouldn’t mix
The billionaires beg to differ, they’re having all the fun,
Must we wait ’til the after-work party begins at 6?
Listen, a free-enterprise woman’s work is never done
Trapped in the cubicle or cuffed to the corner office
Your midday predicament has become rather routine,
If you’ll allow me to be your romantic accomplice
I can rescue you from that dreadful work scene
Click a new window…away from the boring spreadsheet
Close the charts and graphs on recent marketing trends,
Artificial intelligence, big data, rise of the robots
You’ll survive them all but your happiness depends
On your ability to engage a Friday escapade
If not your body then surely your creative mind,
Visualize an azure lagoon into which we’ll wade
I will decouple you from that corporate bind
Did you hear of Amazon’s bid for Whole Foods?
Well, I sold some shares after the big run-up,
The capital gain? Woman, I’m splashing it all on you
It’s so much fun to share a runneth-over cup
Where would you rather be in this moment, now?
Cancún? The Moroccan Isles? The South of France?
I’m coming via a new Tesla, courtesy of the Dow
A whirlwind summer’s weekend I’m eager to finance
Time for removal of your buttoned-up work attire
Delivery of sand and surf fabric leisures by drone,
Gucci, J.Jill, Tory Burch, no matter your desire
I simply want you captive to my summer zone
No, not corporately captive as is now your case
But captivated by the catamaran awaiting bayside,
I’ll mix exotic cocktails, then unfurl the twin sails
On the cushy topside, on my chest, you’ll reside
We’ll sail straight into the sunset, relieved of cares
LinkedIn no longer; but linked on my arm you’ll be,
Reading about romance on your social/digital wares
Only pales to sharing Pamper-Her-Friday with me
I’m in the lobby as you read this, businesswoman.
Pamper the woman . . . like a summer romantic. -Rg2
