haiku wednesday - multitasking edition

This week's words are loud, persuasive, riches
Today I write while participating in a conference call. I could be called on to respond at any time. I like to live dangerously, on the edge.

tacky shirt, loud pants
your riches ain't persuasive
public speaking fail


votes are hard to get
be loud or be persuasive
but riches work best


persuasive kisses
riches flash in gold, diamond
loud alarms ignored

I particularly enjoyed the second one. Sadly true... it does help.
