Shine! - A Villanelle for HR's Crazy Diamonds

To enable a workplace to shine

Is HR’s primary function:

Both people and place must be fine.

HR’s business role is sublime:

We must sway, with skill and gumption,

To enable our workplace to shine.

Leaders and staff may whine,

But it’s my simple presumption

That people and place must be fine

For a business to feel on cloud nine.

So HR friends, rise to attention:

To enable a workplace to shine

We must do much more than opine;

Our job requires true comprehension

Of people and place.  To be fine

In our role, we combine

Focus and blue-sky assumption

That enables a workplace to shine,

So both people and place can be fine.
