Unprofessional, others silently fumed,
To split up, they seemed to be doomed,
But, they moved on without a care,
Illegitimately, with their own fare.
Conflict of interest, another said,
Resentment toward her, it bred,
Special favors to her, were seen,
But, their fondness didn’t wean.
Formal action, some threatened,
But, he was a force to be reckoned,
They carried on their forbidden affair,
Of the nasty whispers, blissfully unaware.
