POEM BY DENNIS TOMLINSON FOR ROYAL MAIL

Royal Mail 2012

Letters from Monday
Are waiting in the frame.
A postman went sick
And none other came.

Letters from Tuesday
Are waiting in the frame.
The bosses don’t care
But just pass the blame.

Letters from Wednesday
Are waiting in the frame.
The post is growing heavy –
Another guy went lame.

Letters from Thursday
Are waiting in the frame.
The staff just can’t keep up
With this crazy game.

Letters from Friday
Are waiting in the frame.
Royal Mail’s performance
Will never reach its aim.

Letters from Saturday
Are waiting in the frame.
After a week of failure
The next will be the same.
