The Office Drone (A Poem)

by Emma Miller

My boss is fine, the coffee’s free.
My colleagues all are nice to me.
For lunch I eat my Lean Cuisines.
On Fridays we all come in in jeans.
I get my paychecks when they’re due.
I get days off and sick days, too.
And if I crave more stimulation?
Well, I get two weeks paid vacation.
