Dear KKR

I hold a dream so dear, a future I see,
A place where I can grow and prosperity,
A name renowned, a light that shines,
Where my skills can flourish and I'll always strive.

A place that's sought after, a place that's grand,
With a culture so inclusive and a leadership that stands,
Pioneers in private equity, leading the way,
A place that's known for excellence every day.

I long to work at KKR, a place of prestige,
With pay that's very high, and a culture that's the best,
Where I can make a difference, be part of the team,
And contribute to the legacy that will always gleam.

So I stand ready, eager and with a heart so true,
To be a part of KKR, and make my dreams come true,
With hard work, dedication, and a constant drive,
To be a part of the legacy and keep it alive.

This poem showcases the writer's aspiration to work at KKR, a private equity firm. The language used is clear and straightforward, and the rhyme scheme adds a nice touch to the overall structure of the poem. However, the language used is somewhat cliché and lacks originality, making it unmemorable. The focus on KKR as the only desirable place to work comes across as narrow-minded. Additionally, the emphasis on high pay and prestige detracts from the potential for meaningful work and impact. Overall, this poem could benefit from more depth and creativity in language and thought.

In light of the poem, the lyrical ego denotes an aspiration to be part of a reality greater than itself. However, despite these facts, there is a slight naivety of the author towards the corporate reality, namely the false idea that one's identity and its development are intrinsically linked to the logo of the corporation from which the employee in question is derived, some examples from the poem being " I can make a difference", "be a part of the legacy and keep it alive" or "Where my skills can flourish", which clearly denotes the author's intention to challenge Tocquevillian individualism.

Likewise, it could be argued that the lyrical ego - because of subjective idealism - would aim to share its positive emotions, to which any reader would affirm that the act of the author (i.e. writing the poem), promotes a positive causal relationship in society - where spreading good emotions, metaphysically inevitably, builds a social reality that concentrates further emotions towards those same things -, thus it should be applauded. However, the Kantian logic - understood superficially by those readers -, portrayed as the idea that a moral maxim is one that if followed by all then would improve the world, becomes misleading and thus erroneously concluded when observing the consequentialism of the author's poem. More precisely, the underlying lyrical motive of its work deals to the same degree with self-actualization but also with decay, and in Dostoyevskian terms, the author's decline can be understood in the sense that the transmission of a positive feeling is camouflaged by a deeper moral disturbance where one's self is lost as a consequence of socio-economic external factors, that followed by the majority (according to Kant) would imply the decimation of morality when considering the indirect consequences, namely the idealization of a corporation where ordinary mortals lose their identity and fall into an Orwellian capitalist machine.

However, to conclude, the poetic community must embrace such poetic themes, because according to the idea of relativity, good poetry can only be appreciated when it is analyzed in comparison to subpar poems, such as the one examined on this page. Thus, we highly appreciate the author's contribution and effort and we look forward to further contributions.
