Committees

Oh! Give me your pity, I’m on a Committee
Which meets 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 the agenda with frequent addenda
And consider a load of reports

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

We resolve and absolve but never dissolve,
Since it’s out of the question for us,
What shattering pity to end our Committee
Where else could we make such a fuss???
