EXCUSE MANAGER
(7/26/16)


I am
the middle
man

the go
between

the boss
buffer

I filter
the failures
on either end

mitigate
the delays

the missteps

with language
suited to please
the sender

the receiver

I make
the other's
days
more tolerable
while they're getting
nothing done

putting
a palatable spin
upon the next
fabrication
of procrastination

sooner or later
the flowery language
will be exhausted

deals either
will
or will not
be done

simple numbers
will take charge

invoices
will be issued

refunds
may be processed

all problems
for Accounting

I shall be
summoned
for new
projects

there is always
so much more
not to be accomplished
in a timely
fashion
