First Day Back

My first day back at work today
I could have stayed away
A little more,
But, I might have been missed
And I couldn’t insist
On marking students absent
If they were there and I was not.
So I packed a clean mug
And some prescription drugs
To see me through the day.
Before you know it –
It’s like I’ve never been away1

I’ve done it –
I’ve started a new term
To teach and to learn,
But we’re three staff down
So I’ve been running around –
Now all I have to do
Is beat the queue
Out of the car park tonight
And take delight
‘Cos I’ve earned my G n’ T –
Don’t be beastly to me:

I’m shattered!
