Employee Engagement: Say No to One More Meatball

Engaging the Meatball

Another meatball tossed

on our overflowing

spaghetti-like plate of work.

Before forking into our crowded strands of work

yet another

meatball is tossed on the pile

colliding with the meatball already there

precipitating an avalanche of meatballs

herding downwards

in all directions at once.

If work is to really nourish us

we must say no

even when we are told,

“It is just one more meatball.”
