I love the chicken 🙂
I love the millions. Someday, you know? 🙂
(and I laughed through all this, while I wasn’t getting serious and thoughtful over something)
Maureen Doallas says
Can’t imagine how much time it took you to do this, but it’s great.
By the time the day’s over, that “millions” will read “billions and billions”!
Be sure to add “Infographic Designer” to your list of skills on LinkedIn. (I’m serious, girl!)
Elizabeth Wynne Marshall says
I am so excited I can’t stand it. WOWZA. How’s that for a poetic word… or not 🙂 I love these graphics, I love the humor…never any shortage of it here…and I love the dreams and schemes and idea streams. This has endless possibilities. I am excited….wait I said that already.
Whoop Whoop! 😀

I couldn’t resist….
Infographics Inspire Poetry, Too
When your boss says
he’d like to read
your lunch out of line
and off the clock, don’t
promise him better
Send him back
to the assembly line!
Tell your sales staff
to hold all calls while
you’re taking a meeting
around the water cooler,
and promise there’ll be
no corporate speeches
unless they come bearing
paper and pens in hand.
Put The Instruction Manual
in every workspace,
a copy of Every Day Poems
in every inbox, and insist
your HR director learn how
to use the proper hashtags
before writing you up because
recycling her PowerPoint
slides and living to tweet
about it has its own sweet
benefits. Advise the union
that what co-workers deserve
more than a smoke that’ll send
company healthcare costs rising
is a fifteen-minute break to hear
America singing Langston Hughes’s
Po’ Boy Blues. They might even
appreciate being called back
from their most recent layoff
to explain exactly What Work Is.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in
insurance, banking, medicine,
patents, or religion or get kicks
at the local customs house or library,
if your assistants can just get right
the rhythm of The Secretary Chant
on Tuesday, January 15, you all
will be entitled to skip work
and enjoy your first mental health day.
Elizabeth G. Howard (@smallstate) says
YAY! Oh, and I’m available that day, if anyone wants to take me to work with them. Have typewriter, will travel.
Diana Trautwein says
Love, love. SO talented. And funny, to boot. Killer combo. (Maureen ain’t so bad neither :>)
Patricia Spreng says
You are amazing. Will your wonders never cease? Good night woman, when do you get your insurance stuff done? Or maybe you don’t sleep? Or cook? (well, we know about that one, don’t we? ; ) Or clean? Laundry? Lunches? But, goodness… just wait till my hospice office catches wind of this. Like a stealth poet, I will embrace Poetry at Work Day with all my heart. The bulletin board, lunch room table, refrigerator door, receptionist’s desk and bathroom mirror will never be the same. I’ll send pics. This is gonna be good. I hope. = )
