Uniform we stand, a tear, a giggle. Desist.
One minute for a life of millions.
I stand near the back; I never met the man.
Damn! Some coffee on this tie,
But it’s black and no one will notice right?
Aisles of aisles, so many it’s hard to count
The time I spend on work.
Lennon said it right, hard work and long days,
Not so long when you’re at the front,
But then it’s over and the earth muffles my giggle.
