MegaLove for MegaCorp Logistics

MegaCorp Logistics Company
Lately I have been working hard at a logistics company called MegaCorp Logistics and couldn't be happier with the staff.  We're all enthusiastic, and I cannot even be sure if it's false or exaggerated!

All of my excitement has caused many to ask: "How's MegaCorp treating you today?" and a typical response around the office is: "Living the dream!"  We've taken our enthusiasm to a degree that is really awkward and personified MegaCorp.


Personification:
the attribution of a personal nature or character to inanimate objects or abstract notions, especially as a rhetorical figure. (dictionary.reference.com)

 If any of you can remember Fight Club, particularly the scene where the narrator spoke of copying haiku poems and leaving them on the copier, it served as inspiration for this poem:

MegaCorp,

I yearn for the days when I first saw thee,
The longing in thine heart, from whence we could not,
Return no matter; Oh, upon one knee, longing to be,
Vast like the dark, limitless love untaught.

I hope that someone out there can appreciate this much enthusiasm for a job, even if you're not really in love with your job, it's nice to be able to make everyone smile.  This was an Andrew Cotton original, edited by my co-worker Chris.  Here's to passing more of these around the office to share the MegaCorp spirit.

  6. Jay, yes, it does sound a bit fake, but I can assure you it is 100% real!

    Dwei, you are correct! I am grateful to even have a paycheck considering the number of people unemployed in America right now. Thank you for pointing that out.

    Shutterbug, we have an owner worship meeting after work every day and he even allows us the opportunity to make sacrifices to him in the form of monetary donations. Heh. Don't worry, I'll keep them all in check! hehe.
