Fit for Purpose – Written October 2013 (Aged 38)

Fit for Purpose

am i fit for purpose
will i perform in that role
should i clamber up the scrap heap
should i be claiming dole
it can feel mechanical
do i need to take time off
hunker a sabbatical
my circuits could be bust
maybe i am robot
who has turned to rust
people do not mean to hurt
but with this rudeness
they helplessly flirt

James Garratt – October 2013
