Home Office

By Briony James

Oh how I wish for a home office
a place to call my own
a retreat of calm and solace
where my thoughts can be by own.

Oh how I wish for a home office
away from the continuous drone
of voices discussing phonics
and the voice of Mrs Malone.

Oh how I wish for a home office
where the only noise I can hear
is the sound of the ripping bodice
as I immerse in the novel of the year.

I like the rhyme and meter of this. It is easy to read and a bit humorous.
