A poem about my day, life and business. Enjoy!
In my pjs, with a nice cup of tea
I get to work, just my pc and me
Curtains are drawn and the house is quite quiet
But up in my head, there’s an adjective riot
Of words and ideas
Of emails and blogs
SEO content – a bit of a slog
My business is writing
It’s grammar and words
It’s reading and edits
The sublime to absurd
Red Bull, Lufthansa
Jewellers and tech geeks
They know what to do
They send me a brief, or a mail quite vague
and my brain conjures up
How to portray
Their sales and ideas — what they want to say
Written and ready, back the words go in
… but it’s rarely that slow
Passive and clauses
It’s all in my bonce,
So if you want words to really work hard
Online or offline
One Thought on “A poem”
I very much have enjoyed reading and learning from your book, “Actually, the Comma Goes Here. I’m grateful that you wrote it. I love how your personality shines through your writing style and how often your words made me smile. I will begin my second reading of it later today. I live in the U.S. in Colorado.
Would you be willing to consider proofreading my latest book? The title is “Yoga and Your Hidden Soul Power – Discovering the Wisdom & Energy of Yoga’s Ancient Niyamas. My co-writer is Bobby Hart, and together we wrote his autobiography, Psychedelic Bubble Gum, which made number one on Amazon’s bestseller list for music biographies. It is published by Select Book, NYC.
This new book is a weaving of teaching and personal stories. It’s about 70,500 words. We’re doing our second pass of editing now.
