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.

    WOW! This is quite the poem! This capital loss is very very real now days and I can see Bosses going crazy when it falls. But I never wish gout on anyone even if he is a cranky boss!! Painful stuff there...But your write, it is exquisite and masterfully written!! Thank you for sharing this with us!!
