Humorous Poem #45 – Service With a Smile

There is a smile plastered on my face,
though his words sting like mace.
He sputters and shouts on the phone.
As I think, “There’s no place like home.”
I’m wondering  if this guy is stable
I guess he really cares about his cable
Now his threats are making me nervous.
Don’t you just love customer service?

Humorous Poem #42 – The Hardest Part of Work

The hardest part of work,
is to pretend you’re working hard.
You can only stack so many papers,
or shuffle so many business cards.

In one tab you’ll have your email.
And the other you’ll have your shows.
And you can switch between them so quickly
Your boss hardly knows.

Hulu shows the Office,
Youtube has dancing Dogs.
Amazon sells lots of books,
On Ebay you bought some Pogs.

An online game of Scrabble
Makes you think of many words.
But when nature calls you leave,
And beat angry birds.

But once you tire of Facebook,
And you’ve written too many Tweets.
You’ll stroll down to the breakroom,
And help yourself to treats.

And if there is a co worker,
with semi-engaging news
You’ll only stop and gossip,
for at least an hour or two.

Other times you’ll play ping pong,
your favorite company perk.
It’s amazing what you get done.
when you come to work.
