The untitled poem beginning with "Thank you for tolerating / My occasional mistake..." is a cheeky expression of gratitude toward a boss figure. The speaker thanks its boss for his encouragement and leniency. The poem also includes a hinted request for a pay raise: "Thank you, in anticipation, / for a raise in my pay." The poem acknowledges that the speaker is "sucking up" to the boss, and this acknowledgement makes praise less uncomfortable.

Another silly boss-themed poem found on nwsp.ca, also untitled, begins with the lines "If Oscars were given to bosses / I'd nominate you." The poem continues for six more lines, humorously listing the various awards the boss is owed. "If Olympic medals were won my bosses / Your gold is overdue / If Nobel Prizes were awarded to bosses / You would have quite a few / If Honorary degrees were granted to bosses / You'd have some of them too." This poem would work well as an expression of gratitude from the entire office, especially the if the office feels that the boss in question is under appreciated.
