Crazy Bird Lady (part 2)

(See Part 1 here)

She will talk your darn ear off

Give a second or two

It will turn to 10 minutes at least

And her manner, it seems

Is unfriendly at best

And at worst it’s a spite-ridden beast!

whyworkfeedbirdsAnd a deadline, what’s that?

Wouldn’t matter the test

If she’s put on the spot, she just can’t

And don’t ever talk back

She can’t take what she gives

She’ll report you in teary-eyed rant

Seems she’s absent, again

For the 10th time this year

Never mind that we’re just 2 months in

And the personal calls

She sneaks in from the back

To her many Latverian kin

To work, feed birds or walk?

Is a question we’d ask

If it mattered to her just a bit

But it doesn’t, you see

And you’ll see, same as we

About WORK she just won’t give a shit!

Looking back on the years

At the job you once hearted

Most of us do the best that we can

But the Bird-Lady, no –

Even on constant trial…

Good work-ethic’s not really her plan!

AP Clerks should be seen, not HEARD.

AP Clerks should be seen, not HEARD.

Now perhaps you’ve been cornered

And you crinkle your nose

Since you can’t believe WHAT you just heard

She’ll say ‘oh, sorry!’ and run

Leaving you in a smog

Whose aroma resembles a turd!

–          But you work on in hopes …

(Sucking up burnt-popcorn smoke)

–That perhaps one day, she’ll FINALLY BE TOAST!–

…Instead of constantly burning that shit in the office toaster oven; and stealing people’s food; and taking over the whole refrigerator!!!  Friggin’ Biatch…


About LVital7019

Just your normal, everyday 9-5er. An uninspiring position in an inspirational non-profit moves me to constant goof-offery; aimless, on-the-job procrastination; a crankiness that borders on psychosis; and attempting to craft something meaningful with words. Just another so-called-job inspiring someone to feats of insanity with a hint of creativity... (Insert demonic laugh HERE.) View all posts by LVital7019
