Openreach lunchtime rainbow

Openreach lunchtime rainbow

Exploring workforce diversity via individual lunchtime choices – what a fabulous commission from The Edge Picture Company for a film poem script for Openreach. I’ll never see an Openreach van without wanting to ask what’s for lunch – I did actually nobble a guy working at one of the roadside boxes. And he told me.

White van man, they call us – but we’re a rainbow

of red sauce, orangeade, yellow cornbread,

mushy peas, blue cheese, purple brinjal.

White bread or brown, chapatti, or a pitta or a patty.

Our Openreach lunchtime rainbow,

powering the nation’s connections,

one everyday normal at a time.
