This morning I have written a short poem about what Sunday’s look like since I started teaching. With modern technology – laptops, internet access, smart phones etc. making us accessible to our employers pretty much 24/7 I am sure many working people have the same problem with poor work/life balance:


S          Sleeping in till half past ten; a weekend treat for working men.

U         Until we stir and shake off sleep with pending deadlines we must keep.

N         Never just a day of rest, in fact it’s often quite a test

D         Doing endless admin tasks; the long to do list lasts and lasts.

A         Always something to be done no time to just indulge in fun.

Y          Yesterday seems like a world away and tomorrows pressures kill today.


I'm part of Post A Day 2013
