Saturday Centus: Work-a-Day World

I look forward to Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus writing challenge. Recently, I have had the additional challenge of limited connectivity while we have been on the road. But today I was able to get out to the World Wide Web.  Hello, there, world!

We were asked to incorporate the words, "blah, blah, blah" in our work of any style, 103 words, max.
Here is the true story of my work, before I retird from the rat race:


I go to work to go to meetings
Then I go home to do my work.
At least they usually have coffee
And the cookies are a perk.

I never finish anything,

I'm rushing here to there.
I think I left my pen someplace,
But, Lord knows where!

I throw my notes upon my desk.
I answer just one call.
Then I grab the nearest notebook
And run to the meeting down the hall.

Blah, blah, blah the speaker drones on
While what I hear echoing inside my head 
Is the growing, tedious list of things
I'll have to do tonight instead!

    I got stuck on that word! ha!

    I think I've fallen asleep in a meeting or two just like that.
