    Pretty funny short poems--and they sometimes ring too true if you work in a cubicle!Sitting at my deskAs proudly as any serfOn his scrap of dirt.In my cubicleI sit, envying the dead.Two hours left to go.These wonderful haiku also take on supervisors, meetings, and paydays.

    While 1 or 2 rang true, not one haiku worth repeating. If you're looking for office laughs, read Dilbert instead.
