Exhaustig, as my chums from school
Did grum and gream at Em Allay:
All mopesy was the Chronicule,
But we’d been twerking all day.
“Beware the Jobberwik, my son!
Five-minute tasks shall take five days!
Beware the Letter Service! Shun
its mislaid dossiers!”
Took hours to choose our vorpal pens:
And sighned our coverlets with pride –
And threw Seevees into the breeze,
And sat awhile, and cried.
And as we kvented and kvetched
The Jobberwik, that pushy moocher,
Shtiffled past us as we retched,
And sketchered at our futures!
Oi veh! Oi veh! All night, all day
At Em Allay we groamed and grobbed –
And left half-dead, but in our heads
The slight hope we’d been jobbed.
“And shall we feed the Jobberwik?
And shall we gain or lose employ?
Regardless, shall we kill morale,
or fight despair with joy?”
Exhaustig, as my chums from school
Did grum and gream at Em Allay:
All mopesy was the Chronicule,
But we’d been twerking all day.
