The Sycophant

The Sycophant

 

By Elton Camp



“Sycophant,” just what does it mean?

It’s a person that all of us have seen

The first thing on the toady’s mind

To keep his nose up the boss’ behind



Whatever the super may come to say,

The sycophant agrees it’s just that way

The boss surely should think that it’s odd

Soon as he speaks, toady’s head will nod



This employee, not a chance will take

To help his employer avoid a mistake

If off a cliff the person is about to drive,

He says, “I am sure you’ll safely arrive.”



Such an employee’s contribution is nil,

However, he’s got a job and always will

Because if the simple truth’s what we say,

Many bosses really prefer it to be that way
