What can be more agonizing

Than the sting of a vicious insect

Hiding inside the CEO’s pants

During a board meeting?

It will be positively boorish

To wiggle in his executive chair

Hoping to smash the intruder.

A smaller fry could excuse himself

Make a beeline to the toilet

Pull down his pants and zap the creature.


But alas! The mighty CEO has no option.

He has got to grin and bear the sting!
