Pink Slip - Poem by Kay Barcelon

There are days I am expecting a bonus
There are days I pray for a pink slip
At times wishing for retirement but even so
I’d like to go somewhere tomorrow
I quit working once before traveled for a year
Was nice didn’t have to report to the chiefs
Then again sometimes it is nice to be punished
I really enjoy work using my cool tricks and wits
Get up early, consume the caffeine and play dress up
Drive really fast to beat the clock or the cute honest cop
Facing the challenge of the day and get into the rush
A check is nice but having a job is a pleasant surprise
As long as I stay healthy, alert, witty and wise
I will stay away from that fabulous pink slip
Not only tomorrow I want to get up early and drive
