Take Off the Day …

Day 27 – Writer’s Digest April 2016 PAD

Happy Administrative Assistant Day! If you’re an administrative assistant, perhaps you’ll get a chuckle out of today’s prompt. If not, I hope you still get something out of it too.

For today’s prompt, write a take off poem. Take off work for you admin assistants out there (and any other workers). Take off a runway–for those of you who like to fly. Take off from a dangerous or weird situation–or maybe even a comfortable one. Or maybe you have a completely different take off of a “take off” poem. Go on and take off on your poetic paths.


Take Off the Day …


As I walk through my door

at the end of the day

Leaving behind all the

stress and problems faced

with my job

I begin removing all evidence

of that person and become

the real me …


Struggling from the work

clothes and slipping into

my comfortable skin

Wiping away the face

others see daily to uncover

the clean skin free of

deception which seems

Required …

Unplugging the technology

that haunts me by the

hour and letting it wait

until the morning

Breathing a deep sigh

of relief that for a few

hours I am unencumbered

by the trappings of the

work-a-day world to

become the real me

and recharge to

face another day …
