The Procrastinating Salesman

At my desk I sit,
Scouring my pipeline for deals to make.
It’s big, but not worth a  $%^.

What happened to the Glen Gary leads,
Inbound is not working, all I can do is plead.

This one told me they would buy,
Now I can’t even get a hi.

That one was a sure thing,
But now they don’t answer when I ring.

Ug, the sales meeting is this Friday
I can’t show up with a zero
If I can just close this one I’ll be a hero.

What is this stupid game of sales?
And how did I get here?
I was runner up for salesman of the year!

Now I’m scrambling to make quota.
Wait did I just get a text from Bob with a new photo.

I know I need to prospect harder,
But every time I call I feel like I’m under water.

Please someone call me with money.
I need to go to dinner with my honey.

This madness has got to end.
Maybe I’ll just call a friend.

Yes, Yes, that’s it.
I’ll just call some friends while I sit.

Friday’s meeting won’t be so bad.
I can show all the call’s I’ve had.

My salary is OK and I’ll be fine.
No real need to maximize my time.

Reviews aren’t until November.
By that time no one will remember.
