Sad Sacked - Poem by Laurence Overmire

He was a weird fellow

Sat around reading books when he
Should have been working
Well, at least
LOOKING like he was working
Not that there’s all that much
Work to do really
But it’s important to our customers
That we always look like we’re working
It gives them confidence
That they’re dealing with good, honest
Americans
Not a bunch of idiots who sit around

Reading books.
