Queuing up

Lying piled up inside, I decided to sort them out

Placed them in order of the ache

Numbness, frustration they caused

The first time I honoured any of them

They smiled, sheepishly…

 

Crowding at the reception, some walked about

Others paced around, while most

Simply stood

Shifting their weight from one foot to another

They stood staring ahead

When a man walked past

Spoke to the receptionist

And stood aside

He slowly moved closer to the queue

Looked ahead, he stepped in behind the first person

The line of beings that stood simply staring

Now erupted

They yelled, screamed and some pounced ahead

He just about escaped being lynched

As he smiled

Sheepishly…

The noise slowed into a murmur

Boisterous crowd returned to a lame long queue

Panting beings became silent lookers again

They continued to wait their turn

Simply staring…

 

Lying piled up inside, I sort them out

Placed them in order of the ache

Numbness, frustration they caused me

And I set about making the ‘To Do’ list

At long last, I smiled

Sheepishly…

wait
