Work Day
I'm learning skills needed to get through my day,
they’ll change my whole life, I'll fit in the right way.
It began with expression, I had a blank slate,
but with the first session I learned how to relate.
The next lesson covered a sincere looking smile,
the kudos it got me made the effort worthwhile.
Then they rolled out some compassion and care,
my flawless impression really got them to share.
I picked up the importance of joining the team,
just follow the leader and the rest of them beam.
Then anger and envy,  very difficult to learn,
you need just the right balance - too much and you'll burn.
I mastered feigned laughter, quite often needed
that was a hard one but I finally succeeded.
A few lessons more and maybe I'll get a deal,
if I can show enough flex to be cogged in the wheel.
I'm still a beginner at this great game of the clique,
but I'll trade in my soul to be their next pick.

Very clever. I'm sure this is what most people feel when they start a new job. Well done!

So true here. You sum up "the office" and the workplace in general pretty good. This is one that should be put up in all offices.

I wasn't there. I didn't do it. It's not mine.
