Don't...step out of line, fall into place,
Better keep up, you better keep pace.
You can't even...miss one step,
If you want to... achieve success.

Don't forget, we have a meeting at four,
Never mind you clock out an hour before.
I have lots of important things to address,
Your cooperation is your success.

And still, you have all those papers to review,
I need them on my desk, they are now past due.
That is gonna be a black mark in your file,
That'll make you not promotable, for awhile.

Don't forget, I'm the one who controls your career.
It has nothing to do with your performance, I fear.
Make me happy and do everything that I wish,
And eventually, I'll let you achieve your success.

Yah corperate America is like what you described in that poem. From what I have heard anyway...

...I don't know if this is how corporate America ...

For someone that doesn't know how corporate America works, you hit it pretty close to the button...except the very last line - "...I'll let you achieve your success..." ...
That isn't in the script. It is more like - "I will wring you dry, then toss you through the 20th Floor window you don't clutter my space, anymore."

On a lighter note - That was excellent.
Thanks for the entertainment...and gif.
