The Ballad of Dirk and Burke

There once was a man named Dirk
who had time while he was at work
to go to the gym
to stay fit and trim
it was quite an on-the-job perk

another in the office named Burke
surfing the web all day was for him
produced much less, but was still a jerk
to Dirk because he could stay slim

a wise man suffers
the enmity of a fool
Dirk quoted to Burke

who complained to the boss
Dirk’s gym time was a loss

The boss seemed all ears, nodding along with the rant, Burke now surfs for work
