Rather than give gifts to my coworkers for our belated holiday party, I composed the following limerick that I thought I would share. It turns out over the past couple weeks, I’ve become quite the poet. Totally seeing a path to quit that day job of mine 🙂
I’m wishing my team a Happy Holiday
With a poem because gifts are totally cliché
Though Christmas is done
And the New Year’s begun
We’ll still party because it’s funner than toiling away
I’ll begin these greetings with my dear friend Mark
Who swims in the pool like a Great White Shark
He wears many hats
And eats only good fats
I’m so thankful for you, insert exclamation mark!
Let’s move on now to the big guy Gary
Whose gun collection some may find really scary
He’s sharp as a tac
And will get a six-pack
Because he eliminated everything that’s inflammatory
Terrill has kept me from the plague of starvation
And fought her A-fib without an ablation
I have much gratitude
And not just for food
But also for being brains behind the whole operation!
Bob Granger also is one heckuva gent
Who knows macros and micros and each supplement
His life is a treasure
His gift knows no measure
He even knows what and how to ferment!
Last but not least is our dear Gerry Schmidt
Who has dedicated his life for others’ benefit
He’s wise as a Buddha
Ages well like fine gouda
And will fix emotional baggage lickety split!
In closing I’d like to say a big thanks!
Even though we lack money stored in the banks
There’s been ups and downs
But we’ve stood our grounds
I’m lucky to work with greatest of ranks!
