Compendium

I bought the boxed set

The whole kit and caboodle

Failure volumes 1-26

School, work, life and love.

I reserve a space on my shed wall

To mount the pending certificate:

To whom it may concern

Insert name here

Has excelled at failure.

A sound future awaits me

As management and government

Are always keen to attract

Ineptitude into their ranks.

I should pass on my gift

In classrooms and lecture halls

But perhaps that would be tempting fate

And besides

I never could stand ambition.
