Today at the Office

Tsk's rolled from tongues, heads were shaken

By Brenton FPublished 4 months ago Updated 4 months ago 2 min read

the meeting was set

for nine am

i got in

at quarter to one

we'd like you

to take this seriously

they said

but i am wanting laughter

and fun

if i had of got in

at quartet to eight (pronounced ayeet)

i could have put a

whoopee cushion

on every single seat (see...)

fart jokes are old

but a bit of glitter

makes them a treat

the room would fill

with glitter and fake chuffs

glitter clinging to

every fake suit surface

every fake dress curve

chaos would rule for a very minimal slice

of the slimmest piece of time

it was all done in fun

and no one even got hurt

do you want to have a smell

(fake artificial made in Taiwan piece of shit looking plastic flower with a hole in it)

of the flower in my shirt?


bit i got in

at quarter to one instead

i did some copying i did some filing

and then pretended to hit my head

they sent me straight home

it wasn't serious

they wanted me to go to bed

they sent me home

i wasn't delirious just something that i said

they sent me straight home

got got got got me a free űber ride

they sent me straight home

got me a token for a mail order bride

they sent me straight home

we invested in a flag factory that runs on pure pride

they sent me straight home

everything you ever wanted and we got it all inside

they sent straight home

and i bear them no ill

they sent me out, they sent me home!

and in time for dr fuckin phil!

About the Creator

Brenton F

Greetings from Melbourne Australia. This is me shedding some of my light on the places that are not often frequented. Maybe add a smidge of dark humour or a wee dose of irony and fuel it all with a strong flat white
