Possibly original layoff poem

bert@terzon.UUCP (Bert Campbell)

Presumed to be written by someone who got caught in a layoff
and who has ambitions to being the next Dave Barry 


At my terminal I sat typing
Trying hard to fight off napping
When there came a slight, soft rapping
Rapping on my office door
Only that and nothing more.

Then I sat up, startled, freaking
Just to hear a voice a-speaking
"Your presence now I am a-seeking
Seeking on the lobby floor
Bring your badge and nothing more.

I bolted upright, staggered, straining
From my head the blood a-draining
See the hurt and shock I'm feigning
Feigning hurt and loss galore
Pure BS and nothing more.

Now the bloody axe is falling
Now the perpetrator stalling
"Presonnel may soon be calling
Call you to another chore"
I think "Right pal, nevermore"

In my beach chair I'm a-napping
Now my conciousness is sapping
By thee soothing steady lapping
Lapping wares upon the shore
Just this beer, and then one more...
