We had this great idea for a new company. It would revolutionalize the way retail operates and we went ahead and started coding a solution. We developed an app together with a clothes store and managed to grow their business by double digits, but before scaling out we needed funding and went in search for investors.
Peach Bloom Equity had all the right contacts in the business and we developed a business plan with all the right buzz words and started to hire together with Stephen Poon from Peach Tree as an advisor. By sacrificing marriages, health, and families we were on the brink of global success when one day we found that Peach Bloom had spun off another corporation with Stephen as CEO bringing our solution to the market using our code base.
I was hired at the engineering department still driving my old Camry. In front of the office, I sometimes see Stephen parking his Ferrari coming back from the country club
At dusk, the sly fox waits to ambush the early bird in search of worms.
Today I host at dVerse MTB, and the challenge is to write Aphorisms, My choice was to write this as a (fictional) haibun with an Aphorism formulated as an American Sentence.
