Thursday Poetry Critique [Mar. 25th, 2004|08:36 pm]

It's time for another bit of joy from HR Julie:

The month of March is here again,
Lucky for us, the weather has been,
good enough to take the punch,
out of the fact that this is Frozen Food Month!
So submit your time sheets and stay warm,
and be glad you've avoided the winter storms!

Ow ow ow! This is the most obtuse theme yet! Frozen Food Month?! WTF? St. Patrick's Day I can get behind. The Oscars, okay, whatever. But Frozen Food Month? Nobody should be writing poetry about frozen food unless they are a penguin, or perhaps Mr. Freeze.

The subject matter was nearly enough to throw me off of the fact that she rhymed "punch" with "month". Uh uh. No way. Bad HR Julie. Bad!

Yeah I saw a sign about "frozen food month" at Super Fresh...
They have a frickin' day or week or month for everything...

Well who could resist celebrating the majesty of frozen foods. Imagine, it's like real food, only cold and hard!

Holy Christ.

Will SOMEONE please wrap her hands in duct tape so she can't type?

Or, barring that, nail her wrists to a board she carries across her shoulders?

Re: Holy Christ.

Dear HR Julie,

How do you write poetry with boxing gloves on your hands?

This is an abomination against God.

I'll send you my Dr Octagon CD if you promise to force her to listen to it. She needs to learn the elusive art of slant-rhyming.

That's the advanced class. We need to start her off with stuff like, "Bat rhymes with cat," "Mouse rhymes with house"... PUNCH doesn't rhyme with MONTH you FREAK!

I'm too lazy to search your entire LJ. Where do you find those poems, and how can I send threats to sue HR Julie for heinous crimes against humanity?

Haha! Julie works in the Human Resources department at my office. Every other Thursday she emails out these poems to the whole company to remind people to submit their time sheets.

I guess she figures a simple reminder would be too efficient, and she needs to write some hideous poetry to shock us into compliance instead.
