I'Ve Had Enough For Today - Poem by David Darbyshire

All morning long head against the grindstone
Missed my lunch so hungry could eat a t-bone
Long hot afternoon trying to keep at bay
Want to go home I've had enough for today

I am not allowed to leave for another 10 mins or so
But the hands on the clock are moving ever so slow
I plan my escape the timing must be perfect
And about punctuality the boss is very strict

Run to the clock first in line to punch out
I know exactly where and which takeout
On my way home I think about all the people I please
Then it hits me I have to go back I forgot my keys
