The 5 o’clock Society

I’m here at my desk,
And my thoughts are a mess,
And nothing can make me sit still.

I’ve ‘quines on the brain,
And I’m surfing in vain,
(These expense reports make me feel ill.)

Not to eBay I’m bound,
But to here gaze around,
And see who has posted. (Refresh!)

My brain is quite hazy.
(It’s not that I’m lazy.)
I just can’t, with paperwork, mesh.

And so I will ramble,
Though this mental bramble,
In hopes I can find my way free.

There’s only a faction,
Of time left for inaction,
And then out the door I will flee.

And so you have read
The odd thoughts from my head
On this Thursday, scant moments from five

I but guess you will laugh
(Not on my behalf)
And, amused, then get on with your lives…


These ramblings brought to you by the 5 o’clock Society.

Now I’m outta here!!
