I Love My Job! (Yeah, right)

Referred to as the “Lost Dr. Seuss Poem,” this has been floating on the web for several years, and it’s the perfect complement to my last post on declining job satisfaction.

Not exactly a workplace Valentine, but it’s worth another look for a chuckle – especially for those who can relate to it (better to laugh than cry … ).

“I love my job, I love the pay!
I love it more and more each day.
I love my boss he is the best!
I love his boss and all the rest.

“I love my office and its location, I hate to have to go on vacation.
I love my furniture, drab and gray, and piles of paper that grow each day.
I think my job is really swell, there’s nothing else I love so well.
I love to work among my peers, I love their leers and jeers and sneers.
I love my computer and its software,
I hug it often though it won’t care.
I love each program and every file
I’d love them more if they worked a while.

“I am happy to be here. I am. I am.
I’m the happiest slave of the firm, I am.
I love this work, I love these chores.
I love the meetings with deadly bores.
I love my job – I’ll say it again – I even love those friendly men.
Those friendly men who’ve come today,
In clean white coats to take me away!!!”
