Just a poem to tell our Boss's how much they do for us each day!

What Is A Boss?

© Hollie Davis
A BOSS is someone who comes in early and stays late.
A BOSS is someone who says the nice things to cheer us up and the bad things to settle us down.
A BOSS is a janitor who cleans up messes and sweeps them under the rug! No just kidding!
A BOSS is a coach who stands behind their staff and says, “We are a team” and “There is no I in team!”
A BOSS is a parent who pushes us to be our best, even when they really want to push us over a cliff.
A BOSS is a shrink even though there is no couch in their office, they still look at you over their glasses and say “How does that make you feel?”
A BOSS is a gardener consistently pruning and snipping and clipping away at all the tangled webs and vines we weave.
A BOSS is a zookeeper repeatedly shoveling up what we get into neck deep.
A BOSS is a tour guide always point things out the landmarks to the left and right, like this is your workspace and this my workspace.
A BOSS is a teacher, even when they think we act like kindergartners they still treat us like college grads!
A BOSS is a great physician, they can diagnose a pain in the butt and gracefully and privately treat the problem!
A BOSS is a circus ring leader, even when the lions try to eat us for breakfast, they crack their whip and say, “The show must go on!”
A BOSS is a weather forecaster, when a day looks cloudy they still can predict sunshine for tomorrow to give us things to look forward too.
A BOSS is a saint, Oh, blessed saint of the office give us the strength to make you proud to call us staff.

Thanks you for wearing many hats and keeping us grounded and focused on caring for others!
