Monkey – Poem

Go upstairs! Get more work!
Put them on! Put them out!
Label these! Sort out wees!
Prep the machine and maintain.
Check all temps! Run assays!
Go upstairs! Get more work!
Put them out! Top up plates!
See those boxes? Unpack them!
Check for negs, input data,
Do not rest, keep on and on.

The boring, the routine,
I do that.
The fun and exciting,
She gets that.
I perform the helpful,
Her mind does not compute.
Worker bee and Queen bee,
I am the butt monkey!
