This is a collection of observational poems centred around all aspects of working life. We all define ourselves to some extent by our job, or lack of a job, and the author explores the many different ways in which this definition manifests itself. From hairdressers to hangmen, and boxers to builders, the universal experience of work is approached from every angle, so that each reader will find something different to relate to.
