busy tonight?

It’s date-night for
the office singles –
but be wary how
your work-life mingles.
It’s fine to let
imagination roam
but tongues will wag
at who takes who home.
So smile and flirt
but do be wary,
you’re being watched
by the secretary executive assistant.

Covid has blurred the lines between work and home, and while in some ways that’s bad (I feel like there are no bounds to office hours and no place that is truly away from work), in other ways it’s nice. There’s a lot more socialising amongst colleagues – in fact there’s even now a “singles club”…!  (The EA told me.)
