Poetry by Jeff Green


Divided we stand

Heading in to work one day
Things didn’t go as planned
My head arrived just as it should
My body had been banned!

It really isn’t easy
To work hard all the day
If your head is in the office
And your body’s gone astray

My boss said oh so casually
My face filled them with pride
But if I want to keep the job
My body stays outside!

So there outside the building
You will find me standing round
My head is on the fourteenth floor
My body on the ground!
