Hurry and stress busy busy business
Keyboards tapping , post its flapping mobiles ring
Office bike beats the trouble and strife pants down
Right now on the desk.
Early train she’s on it too perfume wafting
Electric blue coat next to you soft humming
Off at station rushing now macchiato
Want to drink it now.
Phones ring lifts ding deadlines come and go deals flow
Time ticks pens click, ham cheese and mayo to go
Nearly five coming back to life out of here
Tricky business here!
