Sample -- Retirement


After 35 years
Of hard work and good times,
Albert is leaving
For sunnier climes.


He came to us from Waterloo
Delivered here by fate;
He hasn't washed his coffee mug
Since 1968.


Al's a stand-up guy
Who does his best to toe the line,
Devoted to his family,
His country, and his wine.


He programs like a mastermind
And golfs like Tiger Woods;
He brings us tasty cheese balls
From his east end neighborhood.


We'll miss his festive slippers
We'll miss his friendly ways –
From all of us at ITB,
Enjoy your pension days!
