I’m On A Committee

Author Unknown

Oh, give me your pity, I’m on a committee
Which means that from morning to night,
We attend and amend, and contend and defend,
Without a conclusion in sight.

We confer and concur, we defer and demur,
And reiterate all of our thoughts,
We revise an agenda with frequent addenda,
And consider a load of reports.

We compose and propose, we suppose and oppose,
And the points of procedure are fun;
But though various notions are brought up as motions,
There’s terribly little gets done.

We resolve and absolve. But we never dissolve,
Since it’s out of the question for us,
To bring our committee to end like this ditty
Which stops with a period, thus.
