Buzz Words

I thought I'd earn some brownie points
By using blue-sky thinking.
The boss was unimpressed
-She looked at me, unblinking.

Undeterred, decided
I would stretch the envelope,
Which simply fell apart and
Left me feeling like a dope.

Performance indicators are
The latest thing, I thought,
I got a dashboard full
Yet, my efforts came to nought.

So, I went out for my lunch
And carefully cherry-picked
But the store detective saw me
And that's why I've been nicked.

Nicked:  UK Slang for arrested
