My boss leaned back
      in her chair
            as she said,
Dont I wish!
If I were one of them,
things would be
a lot different around here.
But they havent seen fit
to include me in their group.
Like you, I just work here.
Well, then,
      I asked,
Can you tell me
who they are
      and where I can find them?
You know,
      she replied,
Theyre the guys who run this place --
the people who make
the daily decisions.
Theyre always in charge.
Go upstairs
where the senior managers work.
Im pretty sure
thats where they are.
