You’re an overlord from the underworld.
A 9 to 5 tyrant.
You’re a pain in my meatus.
The epitome of heinous.
But I appear to be stuck with you for as long as I live.
You never call me by my name,
But you insist I call you, “Sir.”
You groan more than an abandoned Civil War-era house.
To say that you’re boring would be like saying the sun is hot at its core.
Your mere presence is like a stab in the face of happiness and stability.
Listening to you speak is like reading the dictionary for fun.
You’re bulbous and enormous.
And, for the record, I’m only talking about your head.
But it appears that I’m stuck with you, at least for now. Until I find a new job.
I need a new job.
