Middle-managers drowned while whitewater-rafting
Will be promoted posthumously.

How can you expect to succeed in accounts
If you’re scared of the bobsleigh? Jackie,

When you’ve finished the MD’s filing
And watered his plants, just open a window,

Slip into your lycra shorts
And abseil down to my office.
