Work


I've never met
a finer bunch
of loud mouthed braggarts
and mindless chumps

The nicest people
you'll ever meet
One's you'd avoid
when crossing the street

If only the group
would do their jobs
Instead of spewing trash
and smiling with condescending nods

The work place would be better
It'd be so swell
Without the hatred
and all the yells

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
