An Candid Answer To the Boss
By Elton Camp
The boss saw Roscoe daydreaming
So stopped at his desk, screaming
"To do work you have been hired.
Lazy loafers are likely to be fired!"
"What excuse can you possibly give
So you neglect of duty I can forgive?"
Not any lying word did Roscoe try
"I didn't notice you coming is why."
"If your approach I did see,
I'd have been busy as a bee."
The boss showed a scowl, then a grin
"For such honesty, you are my friend."
