Expect in what is no surprise



My job performance review that was given to me
I was already informed ahead of time from thee
My Grandfather came in a dream with a message for me
This is the time to move on
You have been on that job far too long
You need a job that gives you respect and where you belong
So for 32 years I got a .59 cent raise
Yet I wasn't amazed
There was contradiction good and bad in how I performed
However, my Department Manager only had been in the company one year, so he didn't really understand the norm
The whole time I was remembering my Grandfather's advice
Now I am ready to move on and not think twice
Move forward and not look back
Think excellence, but use tack

Thee is on my side, and with the combination, I shall stride.
