Fire Escape

Poem By jennifer jane pryce

I’m off out to the fire escape
I have to leave my desk
I have far too much work on
And need a little rest

Thank god I have my haven
To smoke myself to death
I can’t be arsed with street doorways
A chill could catch my chest!

There’s crowds of people doing it
And no-one seems to know
That if you use your noddle
There’s somewhere else to go

I have always been a rebel
And try all ways to find
A different route to go down
And won’t ever change my mind

I love my little secret
Without it I would crack
I need my private fire escape
Not ever going back

So if you see some smoke appear
And are about to freak
Don’t bother calling the fire brigade
It’s me on another break! !
