My First Raise (limerick)

Updated on August 17, 2013

When I worked at neighborhood store

I told boss that I wanted more

So from job as clerk

I received his perk

To beggar who worked the front door

      With that new promotion,

      What could be sweeter?

      You are now well trained

      To be a WalMart greeter!
