ODE TO OTEN 

"SIMPLY THE BEST"

 There once was a mature lady from Taree

Who required the services of a referee

She turned to OTEN

Who had a notion

That here was the perfect trainee

The poor lady had become redundant

Where staff were over abundant

Despite years of experience

And plenty of resilience

She refused to become recumbent

So she traded work for study

To the surprise of her kids and her hubby

To avoid unemployment

And remain totally buoyant

She refused to be nobody’s dummy

The results were really amazing

And everyone was quite appraising

With confidence beaming

And self-esteem redeeming

The proof was all in the training

So it was time to apply for that position

With a resume and plenty of ambition

With training and assessments

Corrections and amendments

Who would dare repudiate her submission?

The day of reckoning came

A manager’s position with a chain

With the interview bagged

And her future flagged

She proved over 50’s still reign
