Reality Bites

Tenuous grasp on reality
slipping into the bliss of fantasy
wrapped in dreams so cosily
everythings looking rosy

Lulled into a sense of security
forgetting about office CCTV
caught napping secretly
boss eyeing me sternly

Oh, dear woe is me
now there'll be no break for tea
atmosphere shrouded in hostility
reality gripping me firmly

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Editing stage: 


A strange sing along to office blues only spoilt by the line
"Forgetting about office CCTV"
"Forgetting what a camera sees"
or any number of ways to say CCTV they stand out like chapel hat pegs lol..
Have a great new year, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

thanks Ian t sorry about that line lol x
