  • A day in the life of Soupy Sales-Man

    Don't ask don't tell
    just sell, all's well
    that ends well.....
    Sales Manager's
    feet on the desk
    this is what
    he does best.....
    Cold calls
    takes balls
    epic wins
    crushing falls
    from grace
    last place
    effort waste
    save face.....
    Powerpoint
    presentations
    difficult situations
    Monday morning
    evaluations
    Airports
    train stations......
    Sales commissions
    in remission
    office divisions
    bad decisions.....
    Numbers down
    get outta town......
    Slow pace
    last place
    Welcome to
    the rat race......

      Divot, the bear's tongue is in cheek. Soupy's smiling and so am I. It's all good divot. Thanks for stopping by....

        It's Soupy Sales now? Oh... My... God... you've got to stop with all these trips down Memory Lane. The exercise is KILLING me! LOL! Loved the image you've paired to your poem!

          It's a great day for Soup here in NY Piper. Some days are better than others for the Salesman,,,,,.

            A good day for soup... yes, I imagine so. How many feet of snow has fallen now, 6... 7?

              The city is getting buried. We have 0 in the mountains. Go figure.

                  I don't think I have ever heard the truth described more succinctly. PERFECT! I recently retired from that race. Just reading it gave me chills

                      I grew up with Soupy in Detroit. I thought the bear might be black tooth!

                        Black Tooth and White Fang, Soupy Sales (sic I think) among the funnies to ever live. A country that produced him and Jonathan Winters can't be all bad. Loved this depiction of a salesman's life,-- so much poetry in it. Thought instantly of "Glenn Gary - Glenn Ross."

                          John Wertz Ha ha! Soupy actually had nothing to do with sales life. I was just playing with words. On the other hand, so glad you enjoyed the gist of the write. The words spilled out like the end of the month sales bonus. Thanks for reading and commenting.

                            '...words spilled out like the end of the month sales bonus...' clever Bobby. Very clever turn of phrase!

                          RhymeLovingWriter, I'm Just a Guy in the Diner writing poems in my recliner. Hope you enjoyed the life of a sales guy/girl. Thanks as always my poet friend!

                            The relentless, staccato pace is the perfect vehicle for conveying this kind of busy-ness. Top drawer, Bobby.
