Office Friendships -- Gavin Ewart

Guest poem submitted by Vikram Doctor, as part of his
theme "Poems at Work":
(Poem #540) Office Friendships
 Eve is madly in love with Hugh
 And Hugh is keen on Jim.
 Charles is in love with very few
 And few are in love with him.

 Myra sits typing notes of love
 With romantic pianist's fingers.
 Dick turns his eyes to the heavens above
 Where Fran's divine perfume lingers.

 Nicky is rolling eyes and tits
 And flaunting her wiggly walk
 Everybody is thrilled to bits
 By Clive's suggestive talk.

 Sex suppressed will go berserk,
 But it keeps us all alive.
 It's a wonderful change from wives and work.
 And it ends at half past five.
-- Gavin Ewart
I love Ewart, he's always fun and cool. And offices _are_ sort of cruisy places,
especially given the amount of time we spend in them these days, and the modern
management emphasis on how we all have to be close and one big family. So we all
spend this much time together, and it's hardly surprising then that our thoughts
turn towards incest... with the predictably disastrous consequences.

It's also why, I think, that all offices I've been in are obsessed with food.
Everyone is always eating, offering food around, going out for lunches,
comparing lunchboxes. Since you can't have the one kind of sensory
gratification, you overdo the other.

Vikram.

I love the poem and the comment. I work in an office one day a week and
am highly amused at the equation of food for sex. People bring in
cookies, cake, peanuts, three kinds of candies, etc. etc. And they sit
around looking at each other, nibbling on the candies, sensuously
unwrapping the toffees, pouring coffees, all the while looking at each
other's physical attributes.
It's wonderful. And then, five minutes of five, the whole thing
collapses.

The analysis is fantastic. True. One kind of sensory gratification that cannot be satisfied manifests in others... and or in dreams.

Barca deal done with Luis Suarez hit M88 and Real are ready to give an answer to take 2 instead of 1. James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos, two of the brightest stars of the World Cup 2014 is being spread red carpet for the Bernabeu. By a familiar strategy M88, opened the first shots through the media (especially two Marca and AS), Royal m88
team is making strides in both the deal.
