seeing what was entailed,
dull Davey began to smile;
for that workers' comp
had been so full of pomp
he forgot about work for a while.
That being known,
he was bad to the bone
with duties he could no longer shirk;
so he got off his ass
figured 'just let it pass',
and headed thus on back to work.
Ironing out legal liabilities and procedural difficulties were not Davey's stock in trade, though he smarted from this rebuff.
No, he had sh** to do, and big bolts to screw;
to 'just do it' was never enough.
