Human Resources Haikus

I am the nexus
For all communication
How may I help you?

***

It’s not difficult.
You just don’t like doing things
When you’re supposed to.

***

Nourishing crisis
Requires careful avoidance
Of crucial phone calls.

***

Did you read your mail?
I sent emails about this.
You read them, don’t you?

***

Yes, mandatory.
No, I won’t take notes for you.
I’m hanging up now.

***

Human resources
Is a careful blending of
Zen and aggression

Time Upon a Hill: A Halloween Poem

Standard

Time Upon a Hill

I lay upon the ground at night
Upon All Hallow’s Eve
And set my ears and eyes aright
So that they would perceive
The spirits walking through the sky
Or roaming ‘cross the ground
With eyes shut gently by and by
With ears shut to all sound
I waited there so patiently
Out on the grassy hill
But not a soul came near to me
The air was light and still
Alas I realized too late
Why I was all alone
I came to recognize my fate
I saw my aged bones
Through empty and unseeing eyes
I heard with deafened ears
There’d been a lack of mournful sighs
For the past thousand years
I lay upon the ground at night
A thousand Halloweens
Just waiting till the time was right
For my spirit to be seen
Perchance you’ll be the lucky soul
To see me when I rise
And dance upon the clouds that roll
Across the purple skies
But luckier I think you’d be
To die and rot away
Then you can come and dance with me
Until the end of days
But fear not me, nor death my sweet
You’re young and full of time
So go and carve and trick-or-treat
And I will pause my rhyme
For I remember well my rest
Upon the hill of green
Someday perchance you’ll join me
On a blessed Halloween.
