Office Chair (with deep apologies to Hoagy Carmichael)

Office Chair

Old Office Chair’s got me,
Mouse by my side—
Fetch me that coffee
Or I might get snide;

Can’t leave this computer
Ain’t goin’ nowhere—
Just editing copy
Here in my Office Chair.


Of Mencken I’m thinking
And dear old Harold Ross;
It sets me to drinking—
How’d I get to be boss?

Old Office Chair gets it:
My deadline is here;
I’m chained—
Chained to my Office Chair!
