Tapping Robot


Tapping robot

Topped up with fuel

Coffee flavoured lukewarm gruel.

Stiff neck tilting

At hieroglyphics

Long hours becoming exhaustingly prolific.

Wandering eyes

Examine open-planned prisons

Forming the base of an organisational prism.

Minimal breaks

Causing maximum pain

Top up with gruel to add more gain.


Tick-tock of the clock

A circular slave

Sounds the alarm to misbehave.

Plug in to the bar

Grease the wheels, oil the grind

Let the hardened screws unwind.

Home to tune out

Nuts and bottles rattle less

An opportunity finally to overcome the duress.

Switch off at the wall

Stop running hot

Tomorrow return to the tapping robot.
