Stuff Of Success (Poem)

As you move on and advance your career
You’ll no doubt forget many things you left here.
To help you remember and never forget
Here is a list of those most common
Which I know you’ll return to and remember often
Computer codes hidden in dark obscure places
Changing door codes that keep out strange faces
Furloughs and shut downs and no more pay raises
Old friends and bosses all trapped in their places
With policies, programs, and rules so restrictive
The only thing positive are client’s creative
Through sadness and sorrow you’ve weathered the storm
With keen wit and humor you’ve kept trudging on
But for good friends, music and the lack of TV
You might not have made it this far don’t you see
So keep up the courage good humor and friends
And success will come easy to you in the end

    Les, I can see a lot of things in this list which I WON'T miss when I eventually retire. But ofcourse some things (friends and good humour) I will take with me. Nice poem.
    Hi, Dave!

    Love, Fran xx
