Office poetry--

Backstory--my old boss, name of Sam, puts up a "Quote of the Day" on the dry-erase board by his cubical.

He went to the same reading conference I did, IRA. He's still there, frantically updating the customer information databases to keep up with the 3000 or so new entries we get every day--we've got THE most popular booth there.

So this morning, someone had written on the (blank) dry-erase board, where there'd usually be the quote of the day:
I do not like green eggs and ham.

   Where is Sam?

To which I responded (because I have to use my poetry degree somehow--)

He should return some time in May.
They needed him for databases,
