The Boss

Sweetly you kiss my cheek
As we lie down to sleep,
I know tomorrow when I rise,
You will be there by my side,

If tomorrow, the weather's bad,
If I'm depressed and feeling sad,
Even if I start to cry,
You will be there by my side,

You always have been and always will be
(no matter what the cost),
But please don't forget dear,
I will always be your boss

Some will say that this smacks of chauvinism, and I'm not so sure that it doesn't. But I suppose that even chauvinists are entitled to write what they feel and how they think. Of course, in looking deeper, it may be that you are writing of something in a comparative manner, and it doesn't portray a person at all. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Yeah, You just keep telling yourself that !
Right up-until she goes all feline on ya.

Lovely piece.

You have misunderstood the poem! It's about someone who has been sleeping with a member of his staff!

Oh, Bugger!

Ahh well, I prefer my interpretation so stick with it.

Cheers, Obi.

because of all the other things that you said. " Even if I start to cry
. you will be there by my side".

These are things that you would not expect to hear/see from a boss.
However, this is a new slant on the boss sleeping with an employee. I would venture to say that
he feels a great deal of love for this person. Nice work. ~ Geezer.
