Twas the week before Christmas and all through the work-place,
Creatures were hurrying, scurrying and running the rat race.
“I have to get done, have vacation to take –
Off to Grandma’s, the in-laws or maybe the lake!”
Now I was just watching quietly from my cube
Hoping to get out at lunch at take my car for a lube
Christmas carol melodies floating through my head
While on my computer, emails I read, read, read
When out on the floor there arose such a clatter,
I looked over the wall to see what was the matter –
A vision of senior management all dressed like St Nick
Ho Ho’ing and marching down the aisle right quick!
A parade of employees trailing in their wake,
Everyone heading to the boardroom, a feast to partake
Deciding my car would have to take care of itself,
I jumped up and followed the nearest old elf!
(With thanks and apologies to Clement Moore)
