Dodging Doubt

Essay by zawny
Posted: Sep 4, 2011
This is the first part of a true story about A girl I had...


Boardroom to Boredom


Oh great corporate one, you have made me feel safe

since the day I began as a tender young waif

you’ve breast-fed me salary and shares all these years

 pension and benefits; a car with six gears 


I labour so hard in this polite company

 charging our clients a fat hefty fee

I get stuck in – smack right up to my tongue

because in the grand scheme, I’ll never be stung


Striving for silver and going for gold

I know you’ll look after me when I am old

You’ll give me that pension and gold handshake too

then you’ll pay lip service for all I did do


So now in retirement, quite out of sorts

I pad my existence with fashionable sport

transfixed to the TV heckling titled Mike Tubbs

Swaggering, rotund, parade masonic clubs


End in the nineteenth with gin and a tonic

Making great small talk so very plutonic

Wearing the signatory light yellow attire

You too can do this when you retire
