Security Guards and Sun (REVISED)


Signed forms today that we’re live minions of
Department: Arts and Culture (Languages) : in
signing each page undertaking to do all within
our power to execute Minister and The Staffs
wishes – translate each document assigned with
alacrity, effect all tasks allocated by superiors.

Meaning crawl on all fours when ordered. We are
legal accoutrements of our employer for one year
but come April next it shall be null and void and
we’ll have the same exercise to go through,
proving again we still exist and again agree to
everything thrown our way,

Time lost in administration is accounted for by
missing dark mass and energy of the universe –
consult the Internet presented quantum physics,
visible matter, just like production, makes up but
5% of everything, the rest invisible administration
of the auditors,

Just like Sir Terry Pratchett said, of everything
95% is unknowable – and so the Government
only gets to see 5% of what we actually do, but
who cares as long as I have my song and dance
in the place where I belong – my work station,
with all the security guards and sun…

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
