Best Poem of Richard Sockett

A Bad Day At Work

Infuriatingly frustrating trying to find just the right person to speak to on the phone

Tediously calling people asking for the manager, its like getting blood out of a stone

Stupifying boredom sets in listening to machines and people saying he's not in

Anger begins to boil when you realise you are never going to win

Slogging your guts out trying to achieve unattainable targets can really get you down

Trawling through wrong numbers and slam downs with no reward can make a grown man frown

Annoying people who haven't got a clue ramble on about nothing at...

No Worries

I ain’t gonna worry and that’s no lie
I ain’t gonna worry because I’ve got God on my side
I’ve got food on my table so I’m not gonna fret
When letters come through my door demanding payment of debt
I know I’m never alone with the friends that I’ve made
The good times we’ve shared, the memories won’t fade
With the love and support of my good lady wife
I’m ready for anything that comes to test me in life
With the help of the people I look up to the most
