Non-Essential Employees Back at Work

 

Non-Essential Employees Back at Work

 

By Elton Camp

 

It seems Congress has finally come around

To bring an end to the government shutdown

 

But some egos must have taken a hard blow

That they are “non-essential” to have to know

 

“My job surely seemed important to me,

But where I stand, I now most clearly see!”

 

Few employees there are anywhere on Earth

Who like to think they’re of very little worth

 

And the taxpayers might rightly want to know

Why we need “non-essential” workers, though

 

Even if they’ve been treated in a shabby way

At least they got a two-week vacation with pay
