Just a Face

Just a face at a desk

For others to joke about,

Just a face at a desk,

With only half a name.

"What's his first name,

Do you know?"

"Nah, he don't have one."

They laugh and walk away,

Making crack after crack

About his half-name,

About him,

What do they care?

To them he's just a face.

Just a face at a desk

That others don't notice,

Just a face at desk,

Always there like the walls.

Always friendly

With a word

For everyone who comes by.

Always friendly,

Never misses

A "hello" or "good-bye",

Makes a point,

With those he likes,

To mention some news.

Makes a point

With those he likes -

And they've come to expect it,

They do like him,

This face.

Just a face at a desk

Nobody special,

Just a face at a desk,

Just a face.
