“DON’T BOTHER US”

In the Common Room,

You’d think they’d fix it soon…

Printer on the blink,

We honestly think

Our use of the printer is doomed!

Not fixing it is a sign,

To which we’d better resign….

It was too much

Paper and such,

Expenses were getting high.

I offered–I’ll offer again–

Supplying the paper when…

It runs low

In order to slow,

Expenses of paper for them.

We’ve offered to build up a kitty

And a trip to “Toner City”…

We buy what we use

I wish they’d take clues,

That we’ll support it steady!

NOT OUT OF SCHOOL YET

NOT OUT OF SCHOOL YET

I’m glad I have time this winter,

Have yet to get working my printer….

There is just one

For printing be done,

The Common Room computer’s printer!

The printer at work’s out of toner,

Probably deigned by the owner…

On his behalf

To deny riff-raff

Using resources like toner!

I’m not really out of school,

Life means learning as a rule….

My feelings mixed

Printers must be fixed

Since it’s been a year I’m the owner.
