A Poem By Lisa Sellman
I completely loathe the hours that I spend at work;
I file papers and type all day and my boss is a jerk.
My life was destined to be exciting, unique & thrilling;
Instead I spend my day longing for a job that is fulfilling.
I was a full bright scholar in my youth;
I was envied by all, if you want the truth.
My parents demanded that I attend law school;
Instead I became a mime and thought it was cool.
I adored Mercel Marceau and planned to be a star;
I stopped going to classes and told my teachers, au revoir.
My days were spent doing the art that I so adored;
Instead of reality, I lived via my vision board.
I only am now happy when I leave my desk at the DMV;
I rush home as fast as I can like a just released parolee.
My home is shared with someone who finds me perfect;
Instead of co-workers ready to judge my intellect.
I used to come home and my only friend was Judge Judy;
I now am languished by kisses from my dog Rudy.
My wit is amazing and my sense of humor divine;
Instead of a boss that hates me, I am loved by this canine.
I found him by accident while looking on Craig’s List;
I was taken with his beautiful eyes and could not resist.
My heart was so broken and needed repair;
Instead of me rescuing him, he was the answer to my prayer.
