Power of the Bitter Pill

A senior executive related
of the times when he had a "tough boss"
of how much he hated working for him then
but realized later that it was the grind, the rigour
that made him the 'thumbs up' guy of today!

The ways of a generation
that believed if anything is to be effective
had to be bitter, harsh and painful
after all, it is the bitter pill that cures ....

But will it work today
with the millennials?
doubt very much
they wouldn't even allow pill
near mouth, let alone swallow it
would discard such a boss
for one gentle, soft & understanding....

Of what use is an effective powerful pill
if its not taken in the first place?
