Unhidden Agenda (For Garry Linn Nelson)

*****

Were we working together?
I somehow thought we were
Instead you seem one upmanship
In competition to prefer

Did we possess a common goal
It was understood
Together we were walking
Companionably toward?

Why are procedures on which, planning,
You apprec’iatively agreed
Presented now as satisfying
My unreasonable need?

Why, when energy is flowing
Beneficially
For all people here involved
Is the exchange made, publicly,

To seem of present benefit
To only one of us?
That can only happen
For one reason — that’s because

The goals which I diligently
Keeping have been in my view
Aren’t the same ones, when you look,
That you are looking to

If I don’t get proper credit
My good contributions for
But find you snatch the energy
Skedaddle out the door

And take the credit for it all
When you to others speak
There is a word exists for that
And that word is: a sneak
