I didn’t sleep a wink,
As the heating’s on the blink,
And there’s no hot water for my morning shower.
We called the boiler man,
Who will pop round in his van,
I hope he isn’t lying when he says within the hour.
I legged it for my train,
Although my boots are such a pain,
And squeezed myself into a space on the carriage.
Squashed as a human block,
Listening to tinny hip hop and noisy rock,
Any closer I’ll wear white and call it marriage.
The tube is suffering a delay,
Because the signal has gone awry,
But I don’t care as at least I’ve got a seat.
The person next to me,
Has pulled out of his briefcase for all to see,
A giant fruit cake that he begins to eat.
We change tubes en masse at King’s Cross,
Once I have signal I text the boss,
Explaining the exciting morning that I’ve had.
Emerging from the station into the light,
The office building a welcome sight,
When I get to my desk I’ll actually be glad!
