A story contains above words
As the captain of the ship, Jack was known for his astute decision-making skills in times of crisis. But on this particular voyage, he made a grave error that resulted in a disastrous collision. The crew was quick to censure him for his mistake and demanded that he be discharged from his position. Despite his years of service, Jack knew that he had let them down and quietly accepted their decision. As he left the ship, he vowed to become even more astute and regain the trust of those he had failed.
A joke contains above words
Why did the boss discharge the astute employee from the paper factory? He was tired of all the censures and reprimands! Okay, that was a terrible pun, but the astute employee had a habit of pointing out mistakes and inefficiencies in the workplace, which didn't always sit well with his colleagues. Despite his keen eye for detail, he couldn't seem to avoid getting censured and eventually was discharged. Perhaps he'll find a job where his astute observations are appreciated!
A poem contains above words
The astute employee with a sharp eye for flaws,
Worked tirelessly to correct and improve the workplace's laws.
But his colleagues didn't take kindly to his censure and critique,
And soon enough, he found himself out on the street.
Though discharged from his job, he knew his worth,
And vowed to find a new workplace with values and mirth.
For his astuteness and care, he knew he'd succeed,
And find a place where his talent would truly be freed.
