Shaun: Serial Slacker

Note:-  This poem highlights how the laid back attitude of a person can have a negative impact on the organization as well as on the life of a trainee who is inspired to learn more.

Shaun: Serial Slacker


In work I give my 100 percent

yet I get a feeling of torment.

People can’t hear my silent lament,

Monday office is a disturbing event.


Shaun my supervisor is a slacker,

who doesn’t work but loves to blabber.

He is a jerk who goes berserk

& creatively makes excuses to avoid work.


He roams in office like a horse,

for his irresponsibility has no remorse.

when work comes he loves to delegate,

while we are left in a helpless state.


Our learning gets badly impacted,

as from work Shaun gets easily distracted.

Thanks to him our learning curve never expanded,

& with workload we are always stranded.


Moving forward in life I pray,

if I am made a supervisor someday,

unlike Shaun never from work I’ll stray away,

with dedication I’ll complete work everyday.

  2. Sidharth, if you work long enough, you are sure to encounter a boss like the one in the poem…or several of them! ): I have also had some wonderful bosses over the years. Having experienced the pain of working under someone for whom it is impossible to have much respect, you do know you never want to become like that. I enjoyed the poem very much, and look forward to reading more of your work. Take care. Cheryl

    1. Thank you so much Cheryl. Yes it’s rather amusing to me sometimes how the most lousy individuals (our past bosses) tend teach us the most valuable lessons in life (by trying not to be like them 😂). Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. I’m humbled by your generosity 🙏😊
