One Trick Pony

For awhile my company employed a guy named Connor who was part of my “team.”  To establish his presence as a team member, he wrote haikus every day, which he sent out to myself and the other three members of our team.

This is one he wrote on a wednesday:

The week is half slain. / Wednesday.  Hump Day. Camel Day. / Morocco Beckons.

This is one he wrote after he was reassigned to a different team:

Like a swaddled babe / you found me, held me, raised me. / My two moms and dads.

After that, we didn’t receive any more haikus.  Later, he was fired.
