Like a beetle knocked down on its back,
With its reedy legs fluttering up in the air,
Us drones, minions, working stiffs
Flounder about in our tedious routines–
Crunching numbers, pushing papers,

So thinly, so third quarter results
Can outperform prior year’s figures.
Tickle us pink, why don’t you?
