ode to my job

AWAREWOLF book coverNo agenda was tabled
No meeting was chaired
All came who were abled
No-one was spared.

No minutes were red
The suits were all blue
All heard what was said
About what they should do.

No actions were listed
As open or closed
No task-owners queried
No deadlines imposed.

The guest speaker rose
He got to his feet
Assumed a cool pose
Said “Hi there, I’m Pete!”

We all hate poetry, right? But we might make an exception if it were sufficiently hellgrown, twisted and wicked. This devil's banquet of adults-only offal features 53 satanic sonnets, vitriolic verses and odious odes.

PS: Technically, it's not an ode, but so what. Cosmic Rapture has been very serious of late. Time for something lighter, fluffier, stupider.

Very funny, and so reminds me why I've been seeking a way to escape from the hell imposed on me by the time clock and a variety of administrative idiots for the past 30 years.

Hi Tempest, I totally agree about the hell, but the bitter irony is I find myself wishing to be able to re-enter the hell. I've been unemployed since November and few prospects if any of employment due to rampant age discrimination in the recruitment sector. I just have to learn to trust the Universe to send something my way.

Thanks for your comment.

This ode is now officially renamed "Ode to fluffier".

How is "Jack and the green chalk" coming along?

Hi Karen,

Thanks for stopping by.

RE Jack, I haven't worked out how to end it yet (suggestions would be welcome), but I do have the middle bit, so I'll put that up over the next couple days, or so,
