Storm in a Tea Cup

He dropped a sugar cube
Into his tea cup with aplomb
Sending tea splashing all over
His new shirt and even his tie

Nice way to start an interview
His prospective boss was not
Unduly perturbed by this gaffe
Or was he just being extra polite

This little storm in my tea cup
Is not reflective of my efficiency
Dear Sir, it was meant to ensure
That I had your full attention

Good attempt to hide clumsiness
Young man you need to do better
When it comes to corporate issues
We cannot have storms brewing

You need not concern yourself Sir
I am a veteran at clearing up too
Should anyone else cause a storm
But to test me you need to hire me

Thank you for the offer young man
But I only take calculated risks
In your case no calculation is possible
I have to say goodbye and good luck!
