He’s a Tiny Little Man*

He's a tiny little man
though he's over six feet tall
with a puny little job
but he acts like lord of all.

When he strides into the room
he demands from you respect
though to you he will give none
as he closely does inspect
every tiny little jot 
of the work that he demands,
and if things are not just right
then out flies a reprimand.

Yes, we surely all desire
in the rubbish him to toss,
but we never have the nerve
'cos that guy is still the boss.
