Flock Together!

People have different motivations to work.
But, the #1 activity on checklist they never shirk-

One act that shamelessly unites them together-
Efforts impressing their superior/leader!

Sycophants conspicuous everywhere happily fall!
How the bosses appreciate! Hold it all!

Picture-Prompt: The Moving Quill

Lower-levels compete for favours to reach higher!
Game/cycle continues; sycophancy has buyers!

This 50-words post is-
An entry to the The Great Indian Blogging Contest, as a part of the Apeejay Kolkata Literary Festival 2015. Great Indian Circus & Kolkata Bloggers

Linking Up with the Fiction Challenge ‘From 15 to 50′- Together, Hold it all

    1. That's nice, Bikram :) Your juniors might be the ones exhibiting it!

  3. Some like to go up the ladder the wrong way, just by being a "yes sir, you are right" You can spot them a mile away.

  4. When the leaders control their weaknesses, 'chamchaagiri rog' will also stop!
