Bottom Line

They are never happy.
They would not know what
a dog with two tails
feels like.  They don't
smile, and no matter what
you do, it's never enough.
They are bottom line
people, and quality is an
unknown word.  Quantity
and lots of it is their language.
But, at the end of the day,
aren't we all bottom liners?
