A workers plea...

A Poem by Jennimy Cricket

Anyone else feel like this?? :D


Stop the world;

Just for moment;

Just to watch that second pass me by;

Whilst I sit on the sidelines;

confident in the knowledge that it wants nothing from me.

No places to take me; no timings to strive for;





But, alas, time keeps on turning,

Minutes keep on yearning

To be seconds, leaning

Forward so as to encroach on Futures line.


Days will keep on seething,

Calendars keep heaving

Up tasks that keep on breathing

Down our necks and down our spines.


Tasks that keep us busy

Both joyful or unwillingly

Focusing our eyes to see

No more than our path’s twine.


Months will keep on flying,

Even though I sit here trying

To just Stop;

Though I'd be lying

To say I don’t enjoy the ride.
