I burst in on the boss
And boldly enthused
"I deserve more money!"
(He was not amused).

"Excuse me,oh,sorry,
"May I please sit down?"
(The 28 board members
Each wore a frown).

"Now, then," I said next,
As I stepped on some toes,
"I want some more money!"
(The boss' eyes froze).

"You see," (I was rolling
And wearing a grin),
Oblivious to all but
My target to win

"See here, snapped a matron,
"You're causing a riot!"
"Oh, BITE ME, you snob!
"Sit down and be quiet!"

Up spoke the boss,
A right snotty old gob.
"See here, my good woman,
I'm taking your job!"

"Fantastic! Says I.
"You can have it. How funny.
"At last YOU can try
"To live on that much money!"

Oh if only we all could have your fire, Katydid! But none of us could take that task without your Viking flair. It's much more fun to see you go to town and watch the destruction (and hilarity) ensue.

How did you know about the job I work at from way out in the frozen northern reaches of time infinitum...? I have a friend that has worked here for 5 years and has yet to see ANY raise, no cost of living, etc...I have been there under a year, so it has not yet come about, fortunately...I love the last line on this one Katy, thanks for the great laugh...Peace thru Words, Ed & Rufuz
