Strongly influenced by Shel Silverstein, these 125 poems and illustrations take a quirky, humorous , and playful swing at the workplace and its many frustrations.
As one of Uncle Shelby’s millions of niblings who read his work as a child and eventually grew up and worked in corporate America, I became frustrated with my bosses, jobs, coworkers and everything else that comes with a job. This collection of poems and illustrations is this “nephew’s” attempt to joyously exercise the work demons.
I have received only one review on the work. Having briefly published the work (approximately 3 weeks) on a web site I created in 2005, USA Today posted the site as one of its “Hot Sites,” saying: “To our infinite delight, Clint Eccher appears to be channeling the spirit of the late Shel Silverstein in this collection of fun-to-read-aloud, fun-to-read-period poems about the vast weirdness of the corporate world. There are over 125 pieces here, many illustrated, and if you can’t find a few that crack you up, you are officially Too Boring.”
It should be noted that by not being able to post the illustrations, much of the collection’s character has been stripped away. I would be happy to send the illustration if interested. At the very least, I am hopeful you will relate to and enjoy the poems.
