Surely that’s enough
I’ve had all I can take
The last hour has been tough
The day had started well
But it has just dragged on and on
Everyone feels the same, I can tell
The filing has all been done
I’ve packed away my belongings
Now is the time that we were gone
Hoping the boss doesn’t see me sitting
Blatantly doing nothing
Looking at the job section, seems quite fitting
The clock appears to be slowing
Maybe it has stopped entirely
It must be time for us all to be going?
Wait for it…. Bang! That’s it!
Five o’clock means it’s home time
Computer off, coat on, it’s time to flit
Key in the door, the week is complete
Forgot about work and deadlines
Head to the kitchen, find something to eat
Now, there’s nothing to do but sit and look
What now? Watch the telly? Read a book?
Oh hang on, just got to check Facebook….
