Workplace Blues

I used to think that when I left this job
I would take with me a branded mug
for pride of place on the kitchen shelf
a pen for using at my writing desk
a t-shirt to wear to the beach sometimes
and a badge to have on my lapel

Now I sit at work and wait
for the day when I will
never need to look

at any of these things again

Hear, hear! (I'm throwing into the bunch the big calendar with the red marks. And the paperweight that often gets lost in the several piles of folders.)

Hear, hear!

Very good. Interesting to read this second -- I scrolled back!

Yup! I'm getting to that point! I like the mention of specifics. I could picture them. ~Linda
