Screw you!

Screw you!

by Elizabeth Challinor

Comfortable in his office chair

Without a care for anybody

Who ever thought

A tiny screw would screw him up

While he wheeled across the office floor

From desk to bookcase

Pulling out files

Screwing over whoever came through his door?

Who ever thought a tiny screw

Unscrewing while he wheeled and dealed

Would seal his fate

To see him sprawling on the pathetic floor

Could his customers ask for more?

The poetic justice of the silent screw!

Thanks to Sriram for providing me with the motivation to screw the lid off my inspiration.
