Refocusing

The time of being angry at panic-buyers,I've realised,Is over, The problem is happening,And we need to find solutions; Whilst all the focus has been on isolation,And doing nothing,I do fear that people-in-need may be overlooked; One group we must protect in particular,Are the health-workers,Whom are no doubt (and evidently) so rushed off their feet,That they're … Continue reading Refocusing

To Be Successful?

Isn't it amazing,How deeply it runs, β€”The definition of success,Being how much you've earned? How much of a virtue,Isn't entrepreneurship?To be a self-made person,From rags to riches; It obviously isn't,And never has been,But it runs so deeply that,Even the most well-meaning are infected, It makes for uncomfortable observing,From my high horse,No, only joking,I genuinely find … Continue reading To Be Successful?

This began with a finger injury,Years ago,When I began working at a company, β€”'Carpal tunnel',In index finger,I couldn't forget it,So I kept 'testing' it; Is it … Continue reading OCD Physical Injuries

Headphones πŸŽ§πŸ’™

Oh, god,When Headphones are charging, I appreciate anew,Just what they give me; Exposed once again,To sporadic sounds of slamming,Roaring of cars,And footsteps of brachiosaurs; What an onslaught!And just as I write...The most annoying whistling...Just walked on by πŸ˜†; I love the headphones,They are so effective,I'd be nothing without them,They've really been helping; I feel so … Continue reading Headphones πŸŽ§πŸ’™

Work Capability Assessment

Tomorrow,Somebody else gets to decide,Whether I'm 'fit for work',Or not; Which is a bit of a strange one,Since myself and the doctors are best-placed,To make that decision; My Jobcentre work coach asked me:"What's your plan in case they decide,That you are fit for work?", I replied,"Well, whether they think I am or not,Does not affect … Continue reading Work Capability Assessment
