At The Office Tea Corner - Poem by Raj Arumugam

Oh Julie, I came in this morning
30 past the time I was supposed
to be in at work –
OK, I was late, but is that a big thing really? –
and anyway the Boss is at the main entrance
and he sees me come in late
and he says ever so slyly:
“Mike – do you know you are late? ”
And I says to him: “Yes, Mr Blake”
And he says to me:
“And Mike – do you know
That’s the fifth time you’ve been late to work
this week? ”
And I says to the Boss:
“Yes, Mr Blake…”
And the Boss looks at me and he says:
“Fifth time in the week, Mike…
Do you know what that means? ”
And I says:
“Fifth time in the week?
So it’s Friday, Mr Blake? ”

    Realistic poem. No qualification needed to be a poet, so there is no monetary benefit in this line of work, mostly imagination, which should not be disputed. (Report) Reply
