Cowart's Common Room
The Secretary

Having been secretary of many things in my time and having just bashed out a set of minutes I had occasion to remember this little ditty and wondered if anyone had heard it. I so much sympathise with its sentiments.

And as the great ones retire to dinner
The Secretary stays getting thinner and thinner
Racking his brains to record and report
What it is they think they ought to have thought.

Re:
Mountainear's Avatar How very true. I often think that by the time the next meeting has come around they've not remembered anyway and only have the Secretary's word for it.

Re:
Yeah, but there'll be at least one bloke in the bunch who'll read the minutes, and ask, "Is that actually what we decided?"

Trust the Bear on this one.
