    Love the haiku!

    Completely unrelatedly, we have a holiday party coming up at work, and we’re all required to perform in some way. One suggestion in my unit — very sadly discarded — was for us each to compose a holiday haiku. I really wish we’d gone with that idea.

    party with the staff
    I can only blame myself
    if the jello’s soft

    there’s no more beer here
    my shoes are uncomfortable (<– this line's a little dodgy, I know)
    happy holidays!

    we are having fun!
    lots and lots and lots of fun!
    did I mention fun?

    etc.

      How could a haiku performance be discarded?? curmudgeons all of them. I would loathe a party wherein I had to perform. Although one year all of us in the lab created a theme song to the tune of the Gilligan’s Island theme song, it was hilarious.

      Do you have to perform as a group or is this individual performance?

    Oh how I must cringe
    Forced happiness with colleagues
    Leaves me wanting beer

    There is no more beer
    Cannot say “Merry Christmas”
    Are we having fun?

    Party with the staff
    Office mistletoe is hung
    Do not act on it

    We’re actually the curmudgeonly group — all we want to do is sit together and eat food for a while. But the Big Boss indicated that entertainment is EXPECTED, which turns any impulse we might’ve had to perform into a really un-fun mandate. I shared your haikus (and several more crafted through the day, specific to our office) with my colleagues, though, and I think everyone’s on board — so at least our contribution to the Expected Entertainment will succeed in entertaining *us*.

    Here’s one that may resonate in offices beyond my own:

    You ate it Monday.
    It’s already three days later.
    Just wash your damn bowl!

      I love this one because it is so true! I’m glad you have everyone on board. Here’s one a friend wrote in response to my third one:

      Martini in hand
      Xerox machine serves as chair
      Do not press copy

      Some more from me…

      Green, fuzzy, alive
      Leftovers are in the fridge
      Awaiting Hazmat

      Egg nog and cookie
      A slice of last year’s fruitcake
      Where are my fat pants?

      Gourmet food and drink
      Placed in the communal fridge
      Stop stealing my food!
