Want on my team for –
Anything in life

Notes to this poem…

There are just people like that in life, and I, unfortunately, know some. It’s not so much that they’re bad for team dynamics, they’re bad for the team! You can be bad for team dynamics but if you can actually get the team somewhere better that way than without you, I’ll put up with that. However, some are just destructive for the team.

The O-series of poems are one stanza poems composed before I got onto writing haiku and tanka, and short poetry while in action or traveling by select means like plane or ferry. These poems are 3-9 lines long with at least one rhyming couplet, and not of the short forms just mentioned. For the sake of elegance, I just called the collection One.
