Re: Your updated businesscard

I am
Supreme knight of the fictitious spreadsheet.
Principal powerpoint scrambler.
Head of the pencils and notebooks.
Your technician and dreamer.

I am
First of diluters and tutor in dubious rhymes.
Magician of meters and yards,
Mixer of attar and amber.
Sentinel of tense and keeper of keys.

I am
King of the essence in spades
Prime peppermint peasant, muddler of mint.
Second assistant to the guru of ambiguous facts.

Unless when awake, I just work in
procurement.

  2. This was so delightful! I adore the fun tone here and the ending was a hoot. Yes, alas I do not get an assortment of bladed weapons as a marketing ninja, but I did get a couple of slices from agressive paperwork. Loved this!

    this so reminded me of someone I know… 🙂

  4. I’m grinning, Bjorn! Delightful and funny. I especially love ‘Principal powerpoint scrambler’ and ‘Second assistant to the guru of ambiguous facts’.

  5. That was a fun poem, Björn. So many great lines in this one, but I think my favorite was “Second assistant to the guru of ambiguous facts.” Well done. 🙂

  6. What a perfect picture to match the job descriptions – I guess everyone has to be a Jack of All Trades these days.
