Wordle 90

listen, pal
this was no giddy venture
no passionate steps
no practice of love
no waiting with bated breath
(whatever that means)
no tumult of desire
no fire of the heart

this was a venture
within capitalism
the practice of law
the abatement of emotion

the bitter clarity of work
awake to opportunity
the chance to fire someone
step up the corporate ladder
