Little Pigsty Space


It’s not as if I can invite anybody into my little pigsty
space but recently my work-station has surpassed all
bounds of respectability, I’m ashamed to admit that the
proliferating pictures and files illustrated with my pink
lady are getting to be too much for me

Time to tidy up, everything is strewn about, pieces of
clothing, flip-flops and socks, nothing neat, all papers
skew, yet now work has begun on Table 33 there’s no
opportunity to stop and fix, this document could only
have been designed by Beelzebub himself

Planning on finally making me swear in colourful
expletives, but I do not - maybe this is why I feel
so ill at times – swallowing my anger at the world
and government documents in particular - maybe
I should let go – I wish it were that easy

To fix all my concentration problems…

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
