Toad



Condescending Prick.
Insufferable Dick.
Ubiquitous office toad!
Climbing and crawling,
verbally mauling,
all, but the ass he will lick!

Slime,grease and oil.
A festering boil,
veneered with a tie and suit!
A pile of dung,
with shite covered tongue,
from kissing ass and boot!

Obseqious prawn.
Syncophatic pawn.
A curtsey to the boss!
"Yes Sir, no sir.
Whatever you say sir!"
A sleazy, ingratiating fawn!

The boss he admires
of praise,never tires.
Even takes the title of Chief.
A joining of his greatest traits.
Those of CHeat and thIEF!

Two vipers entwining.
Constantly whining.
Locking forked tongues in an embrace.
Verbally kissing,
secretively hissing,
behind their second face!

The office toad knows no other road
to reach his goal at the top.
He will bend and crawl
Suck, stroke and pull.
'Till the chief finally asks him to stop.
