Garden Rock Faces

Aloha poets,
     Can you see the small faces in the garden rock? Inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Begrudgingly Bankrupt Giggles

Distant dust settles hazy old rivalries
Early globalizers utilized bold cavalries
Market push-ups rely on shrewd junctures
Longevity of tradition bad publicity punctures

By notables to be favored is a skill
Commodities penciled in for the kill
Corporate lineage tries not to interrupt
Proprietary byproducts of profit stir up

To fete anniversaries in a business is to polish
Uproot to reveal then take sides to demolish
So goes the business cycle amidst storm
Earlier antecedent ideas keep warm

Craftsmen trace lineage's competition
Company signature written on petition
Ongoing secrets in generation of tradition
Escape a system to secure a better condition

The first industrial surely may lay claim
Be the best accept over time the blame
Quality goes to market hopefully high
Court battle rage to blame the other guy

Who lays claim to such acrimonious past?
Did anyone think your product would last?
What about your hazy registry of a trademark
In jest you say your gadget will be the hallmark

Another anniversary of your business life
So proud you stand and such an active knife
Held your ground through warps and wiggles
Success begrudgingly befriends bankrupt giggles
