7 am sharp!

Typing manically
As if my life depends on it
Hanging by the wire of my internet connection
Gallons of coffee, crisps and toffee chocolate
Can’t stop, I won’t stop!
The article is due tomorrow

Why doesn’t the stupid spell checker work now?
It’s already 3 am, 4 hours left to E-mail!
Can’t think, can’t think
Breathe, relax, exhale, inhale
Control your hands
It’s all going to be ok.

Phone’s ringing, who could it be at 3 am?
“I’m sorry Amy, I really don’t have time for boyfriend trouble now!”
Punch line, punched my friendship in the face
I’ll think about it later, article deadline looming
If it’s in late, I’ll lose my internship,
There goes future.

Look around, a pile of papers,
Haven’t seen the sun in 3 days
Desperate messages on my answer machine:
Landlady, Cleaning Lady and the unavoidable Mother Lady
One wants the rent, the other wants her money and the other wants me back in her belly!
Deadline, Deadline, tick, tick, stop pestering me you stupid watch!

3 hours left, 70 pages to read through, damn research
I hate small print, I hate being so unorganised, and I hate my editor
Speed-reading, skimming through pages,
What do you think about the new Reform Bill?
Capital punishment? Yes please!
My editor is executing me, my family and friends are executing me; all at 7 am sharp!
