In an undisclosed location

Works a Guard all alone….

Making sure

That on his tour,

All doors are rammed home.

His senses are heightened

As the work load is lightened…

It’s bound to stay

A long night’s way

Until each bolt is tightened.

With no one on the floor,

Just the desk, he’s done before…

This evening’s split

So another will get

Enough hours and the final tour.

But for the rest of the week,

Eight hours at the desk will tweak…

Labor cost down

So the client’s found,

But the little guy accepts it meek.

Can’t write all poetry,

With limits to creativity….

Need to bring a book,

With frequent looks

At all places with the CCTV!
