Poetry Monday is brought to us courtesy of Diane of On The Alberta/Montana Border (you can find her in my sidebar). Procrastinating Donkey (she's in my sidebar too..all the best people are) joined in and I couldn't resist leaping on board myself. There is a weekly theme which you can use or not as you like. This weeks theme is 'meetings'.
The Dreaded Lunch Time Meeting
It was quarter to twelve in the a. of m.
and I lined up with the rest of them.
Lunches in brown bags and coffee in cups,
snarling where's the boss lady, what's the hold up?
The doors flew open and we tumbled in,
the tall the short the fat and the thin.
The scramble for chairs was remarkably loud.
One chair for each was all they allowed.
No chair for the boss lady? Someone will stand.
It can't be her, she's far too grand.
Mavis and Joan, Lisa and Deb all joined us by phone.
The only one missing was Angie, alone.
All of us grousing about meetings at lunch hours.
This time belongs to us. Its totally ours.
How dare they expect us to give up our time?
I wonder if someone will put our views to rhyme?
