“The Bad Boss” by Birdie D. Stringfellow


Spoiled as a rotten egg
Grandeur thoughts going through his head
Scary as a Halloween mask
Always gives orders, never asks

Never content for very long
Always right, never wrong
Complains about this, complains about that
A cynical sort and that's a fact

Uses fear to get his way
Never has encouraging words to say
The time will come with lesson learned
Will meet his equal, tables will turn

One day, did meet his match
Did erupt a verbal attack
It's a well-known, sensible fact
that equals don't ever attract

Insults thrown by higher power
caused bad boss to meekly cower
Of all his employees, he was robbed
Next day, bad boss lost his job
