Sent this around the office today

Seventeen years ago today
I began working for EPA

Young and able, fit and trim
My head held nary an acronym

I thought I'd be a French professor
Instead I used a word processor

I can remember when email was new
And your boss got the copy you'd highlight blue

Shelter in place and TQM
I've re-org'd with the best of them

Climate change and mutant frogs
And even federal government blogs

Presidents come and presidents go
But I have learned to go with the flow

The passing of another year
Is cause for cheer, or fear, or beer

Whichever of those is in your head
Come have cookies and pumpkin bread

They're on my floor, inside the south door
And when they're gone, there won't be more
