Poetry by Jeff Green


Last day at work

Aching limbs what can I do
They think I’ve got the bloody flu
Finish work, go home to bed
Get some sleep for pounding head

Brain is pounding make it think
Bribed with lots of tea to drink
Double-check each job I’ve done
Work today is not much fun

Aching eyes are just awake
It seems this could be a mistake
But there’s no cause for awful sorrow
A few days off will start tomorrow!

Been working 100 hour weeks for 3 months, including during the 2 weeks off I booked for Christmas. It ends today!
