Who says: the jaunt jaundice Canterbury
Wagging tales hangdog crooks
Metronomes are narrators
Whose husky voices indicate:
Peril meets sensuality
Don't give up or out
Trial judge's trepidation
Scales of mustard out of spheres
Which count: number by color
Blue is a first rate hack
Green serves yellow, rising toward
Purple is the stand-in for red,
When anger needs a smirk
And orange can't be seen anywhere near
A poem or a counter
And thus, organization compels 
The knowledge, valuation, compensation
For meritorious gray conduct
In line with expectations, performed
With the aplomb of one who has been
There before and would never ask for more
