"O Shift, My Captain"

Seventeen redlines all in a row
Five fluids, what do they mean?
Ask me I’ll know
Tight turns turned
New-hires learned
I wear a really cool hat
Would you like fries with that?
I get paid the big bucks
Don’t you know this job really...
  is the best

"I Want To Be A Storyteller"

Above all else
I want to be a storyteller

To be a weaver of words
A purveyor of tales
To razzle, dazzle
And maybe entertain

To tie up readers
With many-knotted plots
Twists and turns,
And truths I’ve learned

To build and build
And then to climax
When my noble barbarian
Unearths the magic axe

Above all else
I want to be a storyteller
But wouldn’t you know it?
Thus far, I’m just a poet
