Friday poetry


I drive as fast as the wind blows,
to office every day.
The cops have missed me every time,
I haven’t had to pay.

Sit on my desk, coffee in hand,
Greet everyone around.
I crack a joke, or maybe two,
The girls think I’m a clown.

Before too long it’s clear to see,
There’s lots of shit to do.
Roll up those sleeves and get to work,
Without further ado.

Between the phone calls and the tasks,
It’s time to have a snack,
Another coffee, maybe a scone,
Cutting the staff some slack.

Phone calls, more tasks and then some more,
Back to the crazy run,
Peak at the clock and realise,
Crap! It is only one!

The time flies by and people leave,
They are all heading home,
I’m still around, and will be more,
They’ve left me all alone.

It’s closing nine, more crap appears,
From almost everywhere,
It’s Friday night, I’m going home,
I really do not care!

I'm feelin' it. Even through the light-hearted verse I can hear your pain dude! Sending beer your way. :)

Epimenides said...

Ting, I thank you for your kind words1 :)

Mother hen, I'm actually quite ok! I don't expect any sort of appreciation from them, but I feel happy with myself for doing my work (and others)and helping my staff! I guess it's a pride thing. Nobody will have cause to speak bad about my work!!! :)

David, send over a crate or two! I have the whole weekend off and it's time to enjoy!!! :)
