The Whistleblower

clipart showing a brown bag, apparently full of money, and labelled with "$"

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 2 February 2021, prosperity.

Knowing secrets his boss would deny,
He was offered big bonus to lie,
But would not let prosperity.
Destroy his sincerity,
Leaving boss to be hung out to dry.

Alas, pure fiction.

Oh, sorry, I just learned that I misread the FOWC. That can happen, unfortunately. I’ll try to thyink of another one, later. Otherwise, I’ll try again tomorrow
