has everything to do with the driver

two sets of homophones all to be 
used in poetry or prose.
horse – animal
hoarse – lack of voice
stationery – pen, paper, envelope etc.
stationary – still, unmoving

curious and hoarse with wonder 
seeing the lorry remaining 
stationary parked in front 
of the stationery store unmoving 
and idle not unlike a horse 
tied to a post waiting 
to be ridden off

but what can be the bother 
for how stubborn a donkey is 
it can still be lured to move 
with a carrot dangling 
in front of its nose

it has everything to do with 
the driver for to look after him 
well is to motivate him to do 
wonders in the job beyond 
one's expectations

however, if any dissatisfaction 
is imposed or is felt by him then 
whatever persuasion or motivation 
that comes his way will not impact 
as much on him

it is human nature to accord 
respect in cognizance of good 
work that the response will be 
reciprocated more than asked for 
which invariably will be mutually 
beneficial to both parties
