    In honor of Poets' Day, I've decided to write a little something... actually... I'm just going to write my favorite poem... author unknown.

    Promotion

    Promotion comes to him who sticks
    Unto his work and never kicks
    Who watches neither clock nor sun
    To tell him when his task is done
    Who toils not by stated chart
    Defining to a jot his part
    Who gladly does a little more
    Than he's remunerated for
    The man in factory or shop
    Who rises quickly to the top
    Is he who gives what can't be bought
    Intelligent and carfeul thought

    No one can say just when begins
    The service that promotion wins
    Or when it ends, 'tis not defined
    By certain hours or any kind
    Of system that has been divised
    Merit cannot be systemized
    It is at work when it's at play
    It serves each minute of the day
    'Tis always at it's post to see
    New ways of help and use to be
    Merit from duty never slinks
    Its cardinal virtue is, it thinks

    Promotion comes to him who tries
    Not solely for a selfish prize
    But day by day and year by year
    Holds him employer's interest dear
    Who measures not by what he earns,
    The sum of labor he returns.
    Nor counts his day of toiling through
    Till he's done all that he can do.
    His strength is not of muscle bred,
    But of the heart and of the head.
    The man who would the top attain
    Must demonstrate he has a brain.
