T’was the Friday before Christmas
and all through the state,
state workers were working
at a slower than normal rate.
We all got paid today
and are steadily watching the clock
Time is dragging on
waiting for the time when all the doors lock.
The Governor usually gives us this day off
but this year is different.
Most workers are here
but others took their annual leave to be absent.
I stare at my computer screen
in hopes that time will go by faster
but it’s all in vain.
Surely, patience is a skill I will eventually master.
Yes, I’m bored. Don’t judge me.
