Sergeant Not General (Funny Editor Poem)

Sergeant. Not general.

Soldier not king.

I train men to fight.

I don’t plot and scheme.

I don’t make the rules.

I make you a team.


Sergeant not General

Sergeant Runbum

I’m better than you.

Not all.

I’m sergeant. Not general. Don’t salute, private.

But most.

I’m here to lead, private.

Not rule.

Nor boast.


I’m a sergeant.

Not a general.

A warrior.

Not a planner.

I’ll live under no jailer.

As some nine-to-five failure.


So I’m your worst terror.

Now get it together.


Not general.

I accept no failure.

I teach. You learn.


“Learn! Increase what we earn.”

Your new drill sergeant editor,


Here to serve.


Well, there it is.

A poem I’m actually proud of.

Unlike the last.

And in draft, many others.

I’m a big waste of space.

Wasting time now.

So back another day.


Same place.



Signing off.


“Runbum”, we are watching you.

(For real this time.)
