A poem about working in a cubicle
Cubicle Commando

Commanding from my cubicle there's room to be creative with my push pins
Commanding from my cubicle sitting opposite the door
Commanding from my cubicle IT department Nazi’s monitor my email
Commanding from my cubicle in my “Office in an hour l-shaped workstation”
Commanding from my cubicle somewhere defined benefit replaced defined contribution
Commanding from my cubicle the clock counts down the days to retirement
Commanding from my cubicle the dehumanizing glory of office efficiency
Commanding from my cubicle I am a cube farmer in a cube farm
Commanding from my cubicle doing the antithesis of what I love
Commanding from my cubicle I hope no one loads my inbox
Commanding from my cubicle I try to do at least 15 minutes of real work a week
Commanding from my cubicle I am the cubicle sentinel
Commanding from my cubicle I will block out the obnoxious overhead fluorescent lights
Commanding from my cubicle I flip the screen so as not to get caught goofing off
Commanding from my cubicle I’d like to grab my boss by the hair
Commanding from my cubicle in a beige cage
Commanding from my cubicle a few feet of fabric-covered wall space
Commanding from my cubicle I'm actually writing this in a double-wide cube
Commanding from my cubicle I’m part of the savings that accrue from jamming employees into cubes
Commanding from my cubicle penned in by heavily used filing cabinets
Commanding from my cubicle I smell catfish in the break room microwave
Commanding from my cubicle I wish I had some air freshener
Commanding from my cubicle my cube once served as the shelf for the coffee pot
Commanding from my cubicle I am the cube's denizen
Commanding from my cubicle I can keep an eye on what the little toad is doing in his office
Commanding from my cubicle I’d like to catch the boss picking his nose
Commanding from my cubicle I’d like to pelt my unsuspecting cubicle neighbor when he makes too much noise
Commanding from my cubicle inside my narrow cubicle entrance
Commanding from my cubicle yesterday I noticed they received the cubicles for the new employees, ahead of schedule
Commanding from my cubicle the corporate buzz-word is synergize
Commanding from my cubicle I’m in a cubeinabox
Commanding from my cubicle I came back from a meeting to find my furniture gone
Commanding from my cubicle I waited an hour before someone told me I'd been moved Commanding from my cubicle which represents the soullessness of office life
Commanding from my cubicle long ago someone took the “person” out of personnel
Commanding from my cubicle to them I’m a resource, not a person
Commanding from my cubicle they try to brainwash me
Commanding from my cubicle they say performance leads to employee satisfaction.
Commanding from my cubicle I know satisfaction would lead to better performance

Commanding from my cubicle I’m a knife-thrower’s assistant
Commanding from my cubicle I’m an oarsmen on an ancient sailing vessel propelling the company forward
Commanding from my cubicle a junior minion, a denizen, a company “video store clerk”
Commanding from my cubicle a cubicle dozer, a rogue drone
Commanding from my cubicle I report to deputies in the 8’th floor cubicle farm
Commanding from my cubicle invented by Robert Propst, a designer from Colorado
