nat'l boss day

I made this simple yet elegant card to give to my boss. I adore the Fleuriste line of papers and ribbons from Cosmo Cricket, and also used Bazzill's cardstock that coordinated w Basic Grey's Stella Ruby line (tho' I'm not sure of the colors now) and EK Success circle and scallop punches. I found the below poem a couple years ago and hadn't used it yet; this year I shrunk it down to 8pt size to use inside her card:

The "Lost Dr. Seuss" Poem

I love my job, I love the pay.
I love it more and more each day.
I love my boss; she is the best.
I love her 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 the paper that piles up every day.

I love my chair in my padded cell.
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 don‘t care.
I love each program and every file,
I try to understand once in a while.

I‘m happy to be here, I am, I am;
I‘m the happiest slave of my Uncle Sam.
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 these friendly men,
These men who‘ve come to visit today
In lovely white coats to take me away.

- anon
