The Dandee Donuts Guy

A tall and short-tempered fat man was a boss I once had named Dan. Both his kids and his wife worked there too. Oh, what strife! They fought like a hillbilly clan. Dandee Donuts was Dan's small café. I served donuts and meals for small pay, wore a stupid hair net and what small tips I'd get growing fat on free donuts each day! A “yeller” was Dan; a disgrace! He’d scream and get red in the face. If his business slowed down, he’d say, “Don’t stand around. Take a rag and wipe down the whole place!” In spite of Dan’s awful ways, he said he’d sure like to sponsor me as Miss Muscatine. I said, “What do you mean? Your food’s made me fat. Can’t you see?”
(I chose the second one here for the contest. Did I make the right choice?)

At Dandee Donuts Cafe

Dandee Donuts was Dan's small café.
I served donuts and meals for small pay,
wore a stupid hair net
and what small tips I'd get
growing fat on free donuts each day!

Cranky Boss

I worked for a cranky old boss
who came to work always quite cross.
Finally found out,
he developed gout,
when stocks took a capital loss.

A Whole Week Color-Mania

Colors will always make my  life happier,
They also make my whole world brighter
       What if there’s no color?
       I think,  I’ve  no life galore
And I cannot make myself much prettier.

So, I’ve got a more fantastic idea,
To show everyone my color-mania
     For Monday Luck,  I wear red
     From my feet to my head
Like a  dragon of New Year in China.

Then comes the next day, it’s Tuesday
Keeping  aura,  I’ve color of sun ray
    Yellow dress  and jewelries,
    They say,  I’ve  hepatitis
But, I don’t care no matter what they say.

Then comes the third day of the week,
More work are done making me weak
    To conceal my exhaustion 
    Green color shows pretention
That my life and vigor are still at peak.

Thursday comes so perfectly great,
I wear purple , also my favorite
    Purple  fingernails and lips,
    Its on me up to the tips
And I get smiles from whoever I meet.

Friday, the last day of my  office work,
On this day,  rainbow color over perk
   I use multi-colored things,
   Feeling of joy they’ll  bring
 No one says I carry myself like a quirk.

Saturday and Sunday are weekends, 
Still, work and activities never end
    Two days, I’ll be all in pink
    People see me can’t wink
Tickled pink that I look so young my friend.

Horrible Boss

Twirling his Hitler’s moustache, he would dwell
On do’s and don’ts and would create all hell
Shout he did and showed great ire
Till someone  called and told ’ FIRE’
That his boss had fallen into the well.

Note:’ FIRE’ means  Fire services  who carry out  rescue operations.

A Halo

There was once was a lady from town
Who wore a halo like a crown
Told her daughter-in-law
Dresses should wear like squaw
Wore one to work and naked frowned

The loom grabbed her dress and wham bam
Naked from the waist down~life in jam
Supervisor gave coat
Took her home and I quote
"I put my blue jeans on grand slam"

My mother was a very stern believer that women should wear dresses..
My brother married late in life and his wife worked in the weaving department..
She did a job called filling batteries..She had to walk between the looms to do
her job..They had suggested to the women that they should wear tight fitting 
pants or blue jeans..To please my mother she made her a new dress and wore 
it to work..First thing, it got caught..It ripped it and her slip off..She was left 
standing naked ..

         ~~~~ He-Who-Hides~~~~

"He-who-hides" just snuck out the damn door
Leaving a list we just can't ignore.
Put the customers on hold
So we can do as we're told.
Oh! the joys of working in this store.

Notice to all employees: New Dress Code

Important work matters get screwed
By thoughts at the office too lewd
So it seems normal
To have work less formal
Make casual Friday all nude

Good IMPression

I once had a boss called Mister Reviere
Each lunchtime for ages he'd disappear
What he was found wearing
Kept everyone staring
Oh my, the padlock was stuck by his ear
