Civilian Attitude Survey


What's in a title
What's in the words
Things the sampler has already seen, observed, and heard
Now data will authenticate the story
Civilian in short civilized for the most part.
Just as long as the pay I work for is straight
Sequester, hold up wait
Furlough, tell me how to take it
Pay cut, say what?
I tell you what
From sugar to stank
I don't know what they think
Survey, do they?
The campaign ain't needed
The sampler has already seen, observed, heard and in the language of bodies read it.
Save the email trails. Reminders to those who rebel.
Civilian attitude survey. Sound like a way to catch you another furlough day.
Careful though don't trip.
A pink post it note placed where you used to sit.
Can't really trip.
Private and corporate been losing it since 2008.
Time for big government to feel it.
Hit the civilians hurry hit quick.
Attitude check.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
