with their noise;
I annoy them
call them boys;
make them coffee
In crackéd cups –
and not the best stuff
that is kept for us.
Give them biscuits
for their break away,
and to give my ears a rest.
At least it’s raining
so they stay dressed.
as I irk them.
One of the amazingly beautiful places that I see as I visit Oxford’s loveliness.
Sat in the warmth
Of a Mercedes Sprinter
Darkness out there
To the nIghttime clinging
And all around a birds’ chorus singing
Another week is starting for me
Work to do (the hours adore me)
Travel here and travel there
Reach destinations everywhere
Travelling through time
(But, only an hour each and every hour)
And Monday through Friday
Keep on trucking on the Queen’s own highway
Mile after mile
And still I smile
I earn the pennies
To play a while
And as jobs go
I like the work
And hasn’t driven me berserk…
