It Could Only Be Tech Love

by sfharper

The seer who wrapped me in the love
of Dalai Lama, Chinaman
and an angel offered me
a tall blond Texan, never guessing

silver would be the new brown
on a too smart head about to challenge
the CEO of Boeing
in a quiz about what could be improved.

Frank Schrontz, wary of politics
pre-warned of the debate-meister
asked the silver dude a cheap question
then said he'd only answer one.

My daring friend to be sputtered
so it was up to me to demand wages
for the technical excellent and leads
who had responsibilities of managers

but without any of the pay. This won
me a smile from all the rest, mostly men
and a good solid answer Schrontz
was prepared to give. Afterwards,

silver-hair with the green twinkle eyes
and glib tongue, stopped to chat
and I asked him what he did as architect
since I had now become one.

Another sputter wisely held by teeth,
a look that raked over me and a grin.
"I'll come find you one day", he said
and did, along with my new boss

one day while I sat cross-legged
on a table, drawing a diagram
on a whiteboard, books perched
across my knees, hair falling

into my eyes and the song
human resources and facilities
and customer engineering
overloading my sense. I blushed,

stood and shook hands, while
two bemused men had nothing
to say but "Welcome aboard.
Glad to have you on the team."
