Zero Hours Contracts…join the queue

Nine hundred and ten thousand at your beck and call
To come running when summoned and fill your shortfall
Nine hundred and ten thousand waiting for your horn to sound
For a chance at a grab at your phantomlike pound
Nine hundred and ten thousand waiting for your whistle to blow
To play in the game for a few hours or so
Nine hundred and ten thousand with a life put on hold
Standing in line like the dockers of old
Nine hundred and ten thousand with no peace of mind
On a merry-go-round of corporate design
Nine hundred and ten thousand just one text away
From the message that reads "No Work Today"

Husband to Julie, Dad to Mollie & Joe. Hoping that there is an emerging movement of the left. Would like to play some small part in it through my poetry.
