He feels pretty good today,

He managed sufficient sleep…

And made his way to work anon

Having done promises he could keep.

He woke up early with time to write

A light-hearted missive or two…

He got to smile at his “favorite girl”

And joke with the secretary, too.

He literally saluted

With a brandish of mouth trombone…

Friends who were coming into work

And those just leaving for home.

His vacation-time form was faxed by the boss,

Eventually money will come…

To tide him over til he gets back

From a week of Christmas at home.
