Irony in steel

Posted on

Silos stood mourning in the dark shanty town
I asked a long-faced silo,”Why do you frown?”
It said,”Tell me, how’d you feel
If they built you in thick steel
And hazed the poor lads for not breaking you down?”

The Ask Master

There once was a boss who’d never give a raise
To those who didn’t ask, such were his ways
At a felicitation
He was asked by a gen’lman
“Have you filled out the form for receiving praise?”

Galactic Turnaround

The galaxy that had a trillion stars
Imported a Turnaround Expert from Mars
He said, “Don’t come in my way
I’ll replicate Milky Way”
And made a blackhole with a trillion scars

At an apparel store called Cool SmartyPants
The staff got a┬ámemo marked ‘For Compliance’
“All hail Uniformity
For every nitty-gritty”
And now mannequins are the sales assistants

See you later Motivator

There once was a VP from distant Doofusville
Who said ‘Team Motivation’ was his greatest skill
“Guys, perform or perish”
He said with a flourish
And watched in horror as things went slowly downhill
