Factory Windows

This poet voices the love / hate relationship craft employees have for
their work. Having a job is better than not having one. Being ordered
around is not welcomed however.Maybe throwing a brick through the window on
the way home from the Pub some night will even the score. They will not
know who did it, so there will be no punishment. Sweet revenge.

A simple poem brilliantly observed. The poets humour and light touch not
lost on a schoolboy factory window stone thrower, 40 years ago. A wonderful
introduction to this most talented and under-recognised 20th century
great.
