Ode to Ruby
A pearl there was beyond all price
Whom everyone thought rather nice
But interviews went pretty badly
And home she went to mother, sadly.
An agency came up with Beryl
But referees said “She’s a peril
What Hamlyn’s needs is someone groovy”
And, hey presto, in flew Ruby.
Half a dozen years have passed
Since good fortune blew that blast
And Ruby’s moved up floor by floor
A long way from the big front door.
Ruby’s winning personality
Goes with organisational ability
Her write-ups done with such agility
Managiing Frog with such facility.
Frogs can hug like mother earth
Frogs can jump and scream with mirth
In shocking shirts and orange slacks
Bought in sales at TKMaxx
But Ruby sorts the whole Frog out
And manages to hide her pout
Whenever her boss Regis appears
Just smiles at both his flying ears.
But Ireland is a smallish place
And Ruby wants a larger base
With Lee the world is Ruby’s oyster
So let us all with Pimms rejoice her.
Send her on her global way
Perhaps to Precious Rambotswe
To America, Asia and afar
Ruby there shines like a star.
