Crawl Before You Climb – Written October 2000 (Aged 25)

Crawl Before You Climb

you have to crawl before you can climb
the corporate fantasy
is not sublime
you have to beg
before you are seen
it is not the quality of our work
you have to be a lap dog being
you have to crawl before you can climb

you have to crawl before you can climb
politics of the office
is an offensive crime
the beliefs on the intellectually blind
the intellectually blind will always bind
with the person they find
the person who is at the top
and can aid their climb
you have to crawl -before you can climb




James Garratt – Sunday October 2000
