If…… on a lighter note!

This is dedicated to most of my Account Servicing colleagues….


If you can bow your head humbly when all about you
the creatives are screaming and blaming it on you,
If you can accept that compared to the creatives

You’re just a bad smelling pile of dog poo.

If you can admit that you’re not fit to kiss the ground

That the lowliest of creatives trod,

If you can dream and then to the fact come round

That creatives truly dream while you just mournfully plod.


If you can think – but wait a minute, you can’t

So please let the creatives fight that battle for you,

If you can stop trying to be the super star you aren’t

And admit the creatives are laughing at you.


If you can manage to stop tripping on your two left feet

And also get your head out of your ass,

If you can stop staring at all the women you meet

And stop acting like you’re totally on grass,


If you can pay homage to the gods in creative

And accept with thanks their vile invective,

If you can bend over to be really persuasive

And enjoy the agony in the correct perspective.


If all of these things you can someday achieve

The creative gods you will never aggrieve,

Promotions and increments you will accrue

And be an ad man true and true.

    Oh dear! I thought this whole suits vs creative thing was over?
    If the work looks good and you are confident, wait it out for a bit. 🙂

    Yes, a bit over the top, I would say. And not funny though desperately trying to be… And worst of all, not creative. Sorry!

    Lol @ d

    I think someone’s feelings have got hurt 🙂

    He sounds like the typical clients we have to deal with today….. They were born without a single creative or funny bone in their bodies…… 🙂
