[Mad Kane has started a Limerick and Haiku Prompt, this week it is "Multitasking."]

I've done quite a bit of multitasking at work, especially in the last few years. My last two job titles inspired the haikus. Then there's a limerick I wish were true!

I.T. Analyst -
job title that covers a
multitude of sins.

To manage means that
I spend my time meeting but
not getting work done.

When it seems that each voice-mail's a gripe
and in e-mail most messages snipe,
when each schmo without spine
fills my in-tray with whine
I know how to trash all with one swipe.

Hello, Michele sent me to say I really liked the haikus - but, really loved the limerick! Good job!

Have a great day!

thanks, Sara, I'm glad you stopped by.

Mad Kane said...

Thanks so much for participating in my prompt. Nice haiku. And I loved your limerick -- perfect meter and rhyme, and it's witty. Not to mention, a great fantasy!
