She must arrange her paper clips
Within their little plastic bin,
And set her clock and dust her
desk
And plug her pencil sharpener in.

She must turn her computer on
And give it time to come awake,
Adjust the cushion on her chair,
"My goodness, time for coffee
break."

She prepares the daily schedule,
Opens mail, and there's a bunch,
Adjusts the cushion on her chair,
"I can't believe it's time for
lunch."

She must call Propott and
Sinclair,
Wait on hold and read her
screen,
Adjust the cushion on her chair,
Make sure the keyboard's nice and
clean.

She must file away some folders,
For sixteen minutes, working
steady,
But first, the cushion on her
chair.
"What's this, quitting time
already."

Wouldn't have that kind of job
To have sit and look busy
I'd rather have the one I've got
Though it sometimes makes me dizzy

No a minute to call my own
Someone else controls my time
But when day rolls around
I know I've every dime!!!

Blessed are the good secretary's of the world!!! Cute poem!!!! Hope to see more!
