Sonnet VIII

I swiped my card at 7:39.
But payroll says my paycheck will be docked,
Because I didn't get to work on time?
I wasn't due to work till 8:00!

I just don't understand how this can be.
I always call ahead if I'm delayed.
It doesn't make a bit of sense to me,
For thirty minutes clocked to not be paid.

Two supervisors I had to pursue,
To figure out that it was their misplay.
I hope they don't perceive me as a shrew.
That's not the image I hope to display.

I vow tomorrow I will not be late,
‘Cause I'll be there by 7:38.

This is a lovely poem. To think that it's a sonnet. Wow! I haven't tried making one yet...

I hope you got your paycheck. (wink)

Hi Michele! I have a tribute for you. A small token of what I failed to do for you. I hope you like it.
