Decisions, Decisions

Do I blast the boss
Or just leave and have a beer?
Hey! Why not do both?

Should I really be
Rocking the boss’s boat so
Close to beer thirty?

Stolen Happy Hour

The meeting drags on
The boss steals more and more time
I could be drinking

Opening a beer
To celebrate the day’s end
And then the boss calls

The Session: Tripel Interrupted

why does the boss call
when I’m trying to fulfil
my Session duties

At last the Tripel
Reaches my anxious lips… Damn!
Not the phone again

Finally at peace
I find that a Tripel is
Just the thing I need

This session really didn’t work out the way I had planned. Normally, I would be sharing a tripel with my wife but she is working late tonight. Since I couldn’t enjoy her company, I thought I would cut out of work early and enjoy the company of the tripel, trippel, and triple I brought home for the occasion. But then someone scheduled a late meeting, and then after that my boss called, and then he wouldn’t shut up, and finally just as I popped the first one a telemarketer called. The third haiku is pure fiction, because I was not even a few sips into the first sample and I learned that I needed to deal with another emergency.

Since you will not be getting any new reviews from me today, I hope you can enjoy some haiku of tripels past:
