Their Marketing Manager

Their marketing manager is not in his office His staff do not know where he is He is in constant touch

On the top deck of a bus He leans forward to hear a couple talk He slips out of the back row of our seminars Before the lights come up And emerges from the cloakroom Mingling with our customers, head slightly inclined He listens with a faint smile

In trains, taxis His ears are everywhere Hearing him at industry conferences Our customers gasp and laugh

He stares moodily from café windows He owns the rain-swept street
