Another scrap unearthed! This one is from 2005. I graduated with a degree in creative writing, and soon after got a job as an accounting assistant. English majors have sundry timelines. My coworkers challenged me to write a poem for them, and this is what they got. We did a lot of filing….
There once were accountants with brooms
who decided they needed more room.
“If we’re going to keep it,
we might as well sweep it
before we shelve more of our doom.”
