WALKABOUTSVERSE 227 OF 230

Poem 227 of 230:  ROTATING SHIFTS

There will always be places
    That need to be staffed
Twenty-four hours a day,
    But I think it’s daft
To rotate bodies and minds
    Around any craft…

The better way seems to be
    Allowances paid
For three fixed eight-hour shifts -
    With adjustments laid,
By those choosing to work nights,
    For sleep to be made.
