The Corporate Runway

The Corporate Runway

With a sling bag on her shoulder
And a checklist of wit packed inside
She arrived at the airport of opportunity
Two suitcases of energy
A handbag of education
And an extra bag of optimism,
Piled up on the trolley of ambition.
She made her way through the crowd
To the queue for the prized destination

While she waited for her turn
To catch the flight of success
The weather was clear 

And her chances seemed bright
Her restless feet tapped the ground
Eyes fixated on the gateway
One suitcase worth of energy
brimmed over her every pore
Seemingly in anticipation

At the checkpoint of security
Sundry handbags lay scattered
She was told to deposit hers
It was, they said, her entry ticket
She complied, clutching her sling bag
Her one left suitcase of energy and
an extra bag of optimism
On the headstrong trolley
Confidently marching ahead

Enthralling was her luminous flagship
She eyed the first-class seat
The crew greeted her warmly
And handed her the kit of rules
“Welcome to the corporate runway!
Your luggage is our fuel
You will have to earn your own goodies
But the trolley, is yours to keep
That’s what YOU get to FLY with!”
