Bogged Down

Work is overflowing

With bits and bobs to do.

I don’t know how I’ll ever

See it all through.

I wake up in the morning

With lists on my mind,

Eating my breakfast,

Aware of how much I’m behind.

I start on one job

And another soon appears,

Feels like I am constantly

Swimming in arrears.

Hurry up summer holidays

And make it go away,

I’ve had as much as I can take,

I really want to play.

Summer Heat

Summer is here,

Off we go.

Let’s drive to the beach,

Enjoy the sun’s glow.

Boiling our blood,

Making us sweat.

Slap on some sunscreen

Then go and get wet.

Ride on a donkey,

Build castles of sand.

Hop on a boat

Or chill safely on land.

Get out and about

Eat ice cream galore,

Then find somewhere shaded

And lay down and snore.

This was my little poem about hot days. Yesterday was the hottest day of the the year so far and was incredibly uncomfortable to work in. I hope that everyone is taking care in the sun this season. For another poem, check out One Of Those Days.

One Of Those Days

Another Monday,

Busy as ever,

It isn’t funny,

It isn’t clever.

The week begins

With loads to do,

I’m always glad

To see it through.

Full of hassle

Busy with chores

Monday can be

Packed with bores.

Tomorrow’s Tuesday

Cannot wait.

Hoping for much less

On my plate.
