Wish I Were There

switch off the office

 

Wish I Were There

I should be on holiday right now,
Instead I’m still at work
Still typing out reports that won’t be read
I should be in at the seaside
Cranking a what-the-butler-saw with a smirk,
Then fish & chips on the prom and late to bed.
I long to swap my bowler hat
For stetson, panama, or fez
Instead of charting overheads
With Paul the Bore and dreary Des

I should be on holiday right now,
Not swamped in endless work
While dreaming that I’m swimming in the Med
I should be in a cocktail bar
With the just-met eyes of a sexy Turk
Or a charming couple from outside-Leatherhead
I long to be in Venice
As my corp’rate stress unwinds,
But instead the sun is trapped behind
These beige Venetian blinds.
