Work

Life in Stasis

Breathe in

Breathe out

Repeat

Wake up, wash, dress
Put on somebody else’s face
smile
don’t forget this
It’s important to show
you’re OK

Breathe in

Breathe out

Repeat

Work
Scrape the dirt from your nails
Stand up straight
smile
don’t forget this
is your necessity

Breathe out

Breathe in

Repeat

Walk, run
Catch a bus, the tube
try not to touch
or smile
don’t forget this
isn’t a game
It’s life

Breathe out

Try not to breathe in

Repeat

Eat,
Clean the dishes
take a bath, relax
smile
don’t forget this
is your time
then sleep


Repeat

A – Z Challenge: D is for Dumb

Dummies at dawn

There never was a bigger pair
Of idiots bunched in disrepair
Squalling tantrums, throwing toys
Is what becomes of hiring boys
To do a mans work, yes it’s true
But you didn’t want to pay, did you

All this talk of living wage
Would help you fly into a rage
Instead you think you’re rather smart
And bypassed that rule, for a start
You’d rather pay pennies for duds
Than let your bank release the goods

And while it’s good to help to train
these children shouldn’t be your main
source of employment, if you need
experience – Now take the lead
Show your team you have their back
These children can’t make up the slack
