Truckle?!? You've GOT to be kidding! But, dedicated employee I am, I'll burn the midnight oil to meet deadline. =]

Image (c) 2007, Karla Dorman

TRUCKLE, verb:  to yield slavishly to the will of another; submit.

I owe, I owe,
It's off to work I go ...

Toiling under pressure, pick up pen, put it down, pick it up while words
Roll by faster than Lucy and Ethel's chocolates.  Brain melts, but hands
Unconsciously work to meet deadline:  will be dead if the poem is not
Consigned by morning's light.  Would like to ship it to Idaho where the
Keeper of the challenge comes from.  No.  I love my job, I love my job, I
Love my job.  Dedicated.  Willing to work long hours.  I am the best
Employee she has.  Wonder if I'll finally get the raise she promised me?

(c) 2009, Karla Dorman  (10/2)

Being a trucker is not an easy life, but then neither are many other jobs. Many are thankless jobs, but we all do what we have to, huh?

Be always safe,

I had a friend who told me once, he was quitting his job because it was interfering with his hobbies
The real funny part was he did, no more truckling for him
Enjoyed the write
Have a great day

You know me..."truckle" is one I too will add to my list! I know this feeling all too well! It seems like that last empire, but, we all know what happened to them! Truckle on and our rewards will be many! This I know! :)
Loved it!
Love and Peace~

Karla, well done. Just added your new word to my list of unique words to use to confuse people who think they're smart. Cute write, but knowing your employer's penchant for low pay--long hours--and no appreciation, I think I'd start looking for a better job.

If you have to truckle, you should get paid well for it.

I hope you get the raise. Nice write.

Excellent acrostic, a raise would be better. Patrick

Great word and kind of goes with the trucker's/truckess's slavish submission to deadlines and clocks somehow. Like both your pace and energy in this short-form, Karla. Reminds me of that 70s/80s song "Convoy"! The pressure's mountin... xx

P.S. Thanks to you and Karen for lifting me up in prayer, your prayers are answered, I am feeling better and the burn is healing. May the Lord always bless you and meet all of your needs!

FAB-YOU-LOUS-!! Very, very clever, Luv. Made it look like a snap, but it must have taken a lot of time and work to create this doozie.
LOVE IT!!! Chose a fun way to illustrate, t'top it all. Proud t'know you, now give us another, sweethot. Love & Kisses, Pea ....PS: Once was lucky enough to work with a little character at a developmental center who called me "sweethot." Therapy goal was
for him to say "Throw the ball to me." When he said, "Throw me the ball, sweethot," I couldn't help but laugh. Just encouraged him.:) I have had the most wonderful friends!! You, f'rinstance.:) Keep yer

You have me laughing... I disagree with Jerry. You are CERTAINLY quite appreciated by me! hee, hee... I wish I could give you that raise!
I guess I now just await your next challenge for me.

By the way, a little bit of trivia for you... I learned this word by reading Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder. (I homeschool some of my children and we read it for Lit. class.)

I doubt the raise is forthcoming, but maybe you should look around for a better employer, I feel you may not be appreciated as much as you deserve. Good writing, Karla.
