The Outsource Marketing team sang with contagious delight,
How much they loved marketing, all day and all night.
“Bah, Humbug!” groaned Patrick, “It’s time for a rest.”
“We’re closing for Christmas, returning the New Year our best.”
But no amends did they make, for the team kept singing,
About projects of the Past, the Present, the Future, Patrick’s ears kept ringing.
Standing in front was Jesse, Kate, Lisa, and Sai,
They sang so proudly, so lively they did try.
And stuck in the back, Andrea, Rick, Rheana, and Blair,
Their hands frozen stiff, they continued without care.
The chap in the door, he was white as a ghost,
A former intern, he sang louder than most.
Said Patrick, “Put an end to your carols, and haunt me no longer.”
“Your words, they do echo, and make my heart stronger.”
“I will honor marketing in my heart and try to keep it all the year.
No more Bah, Humbug! I’ll only know cheer.”
The Outsource Marketing team resumed caroling and having much fun,
Shouting, “Have a wonderful New Year, and God Bless us, everyone!”
