Title: Work Experience

I’ve been sent here, Up North
They were having a laugh
It’s dark and it’s dreary
And it’s naffer than naff
No, I mean
I came with an open-mind
Honest, I did
But on my very first day
Someone nicked twenty quid
From my jeans
It really is a dump
There’s no point socialising
Unless I want a thump
Or someone to black my eyes in
I’ve already been
So I should know
and just go to work
then make my way home
I’d been such a jerk
Not to have seen
A Creative from The South
Would never go down
In a flat-cap and ferret
Backward bin of a town;
This obscene
I’m just counting the days
And taking it on the chin
Nothing more I can
It’s dimmer than grim
They’re such mean
