A Few Jokes Told While I Do It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
It's difficult to get people up off of their knees.
Especially if they believe,
It is part of some kind of delivery process.
'Have you asked for another assignment? '
I asked for that the moment we arrived.
When I saw them rushing to do that...
Getting on their knees business,
I knew right then it would be too much of a challenge.
What would you prefer to do? '
If it was up to me,
I would like to put my foot up some rear ends.
With an accepting softer touch.
A few jokes told while I do it!
To awaken them that way.
This sympathetic, empathetic stuff they desire,
With the patting on the back and the sobbing of the tears...
Is too much over the top for me!
