Haikus and Lows


Some workplace-inspired poetry in the 5-7-5 syllabic paradigm:

Someone's pretending
That he's not playing FreeCell
Calls doomed to voicemail

            -----    

I'll never zone out
In another long meeting
Thanks, tack in my shoe

            -----    

That's a cute photo
Of your new bundle of joy
For the seventh time

            -----

Corporate is coming
Restrict access to YouTube
And fetch my ChapStick

            -----

Shirt-tie rotation
Has become repetitive
There's a sale at Kohl's

            -----

I'm back in high school
Doing cheerleaders' homework
But now they get paid

            -----

Pot of old coffee
Smells somewhat like brake fluid
Still we drink bravely

           -----

A night in the box
For back-sassing a free man
Just like "Cool Hand Luke"

            -----

Season of giving
So I gave you some breath mints
Love, Secret Santa

            -----

I think I'll visit
The unemployment office
And count neck tattoos

            -----

  1. Typing while naked
    Was not in the contract
    I may catch my death
