Why doesn’t the poetry library (dot e.d.u dot a.u)
have a section on work?
It has war (check),
sad (check),
school, sweet, sympathy (check).
There’s bush (of course)
and death (check),
engagement, family and friendship (check, check, check).
War is work,
I’m sad at work,
school was work,
work isn’t sweet.
I’ve got no sympathy for my boss,
who once worked in the bush.
A man was crushed to death at work.
She got engaged to a bloke she worked with,
had a family with a bloke she worked with,
I was a friend to a bloke she worked with.
I couldn’t give a shit about poetry at work
& neither could the poetry library dot e.d.u dot a.u.
