This week, to kick off the new WORK year, we present 2 poems by perennial WORK-er Mary Slocum.
Check out Ms. Slocum’s past poetry here documenting the vindictive rage of a wronged employee, here where she hangs with schizophrenics, and here in which she goes to a meeting gone awry. What better way to ring in the new year than with writing such as this?
Yes, it’s a new year here at WORK. We hope you have enjoyed three solid years of quality writing on the topic of work. A friend said as I wrote this post, “See? Persistence pays off.” He did not, however, offer to assist in the creation of Mary’s pages. So, please, validate my existence and read, read, read.
Ever your editor,
