The Home Executive



Working from home can be solitary.

It’s a strange world,

and a strange occupation.

It has its benefits of course.

There is no need to drive to work,

search for a park

or pay for it.

You don’t even have to get out of your pyjamas.

What other job can you spend your morning tea break, hanging out your washing?

or feeding the cat?

You recognise your colleagues by voice,

most of them have photos in Skype messenger of course,

but I am unconvinced that I work with Batman and someone’s ginger cat.

Feelings are expressed with emoji’s,

and turning up to meetings with unbrushed hair is the norm.

I never imagined I would work from home.


I can’t imagine ever going back into the office.
