My third timesheet submission (and also was our billing month so had to include a comment at the end about them being needed for billing next week). At our work it is customary that a new employees brings in morning tea (or afternoon tea). Our latest employee hadn’t … ironically he did the week after this poem, perhaps he got the message? Also some “swearing” at the end, was going to keep it out but thought it a comical contrast to the rest of the poem. Enjoy!
With the arrival of our hydrologist at hand,
Thought best to remind those who commence
Us simple folk desire one thing planned.
Morning tea is but a little task to dispense.
The failure of our latest still burning ears.
Best he satisfy our qualms for a debt unpaid,
For we always collect from those in arrears.
A simple deed to keep tensions bayed.
If inspiration eludes you, simply ask
We will not be strangers with food.
Now fulfil this deed and achieve this task,
For not all our maidens are eternally good.
Oh I almost forgot, you must be vigilant
For it is time to collect our keeper’s fees.
Or come Tuesday our reticent Numbers will rant;
“Fill in your f@#%ing time sheets, please!”
