Weekend Limericks

Limericks. That’s how I face a busy weekend.

If I think at once of all I’ve

To do, then I’ll never arrive:

It takes some denial

To get through my pile

And come out the backside alive

 

This conjures an image intestinal;

Perhaps, then, to work is just destinal —

The weekend, it’s true,

Is just more to go through;

At least, “going through” is directional —

Hallways : Luxury Hotel

How did I ever end up here?
It’s like a sort of fantasy –
And yet, these halls are real,
And this is happening to me

But sill, life’s downs and ups
They are but little understood:
And when I wasn’t looking
Things turned
Good

Hallways : Modern Office Atrium

So what now, can they make of this place?
All is still to do;
Location’s good, they have the space,
No effort they’ll eschew

The dreams of those who try their hand,
Another, average day;
An empty room turned into something,
That’s
The human
Way

New Girl

She is a sight to see.

New Girl

There’s a new girl in the office
And she is a sight to see;
Crowds out thoughts of his career,
Family or dignity

Like a flame to oil and paper,
All’s ablaze since she was hired —
Graying men’s mid-age obsession
That they, too, might be
Desired
