Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

counting the stars

They told me the job was easy, the told me my days would be free. But the fact that it would take me aeons to complete was the fact they kept from me.

They asked if I was serious , they enquired that I was trustworthy , hard working and able to work alone. They forgot to tell me my eyes would be boggled every morning when I got home.

They gave me a computer a pad and pen oh! and they threw in broadband but after that I did not hear from them again!

Their medical division offered me some dark glasses but I think that was a joke. The scientific section got me a telescope I was all excited with this job so I was full of hope.

They showed me my work station it was in a field they bought me in a ergonomic chair across the grass it wheeled. I was allowed two tea breaks and a 30minute lunch but definitely no coffee at my desk and they threw in some coloured bands so I could keep my pens all in a bunch.

They gave me an umbrella in case there should be rain and a little woolly hat just to protect my brain. So now I was ready excited and inspired I was determined to make them glad that it was me they hired.

Now I hear your brain ticking I know what you want to know what is it that my job is and why does it please me so. I have to count the stars all of them up in the skies I shall be busy every night with stars before my eyes!

    Wow! It looks like you are doing a poem cycle off of nursery rhymes. This one approaches the surreal. Ver nicely done!

    This first stanza is brilliant and provides a nice open metaphor for all of us to think about!
