Poetry Series: Painful Meeting

Updated on August 24, 2014

Get Me Out of Here!

Why am I here

stuck in this room

with people talking

about stuff I could care not.

I'd rather

stick pins

in my eyes

plug my ears

with cotton balls

than sit here

one more minute.

Dialogue Nightmare

It's 8pm

way past Netflix Time

too late for debate

or political analysis

and discourse of any kind.

16 minutes have passed

is that all?

There's a crazy

up here right not

even a crazier lady

than we are used to.

Drunkenness in the corner

thick accents in the front

a Japanese professor

who can't understand a word being said

and crazy bringing up the rear.

Quite a crowd

don't you wish you were here?

Kiss Up in the Corner

Yep she always has a question

fake interest in the topic

a big kiss on her lips

for her bosses' ass.

Now she's pretending

interest in Scotland politics

as if

such a thing could exist

anywhere in the world

outside Scotland

that is.

      I've been in these places and bored to pieces. If it's not adding value, then it's probably a waste of time.

      I think we all have been there at least once. So true.

      I feel the boredom with the people and situations. Very graphic and emotional. Good job putting feelings into words.

      It wore me out just reading it. Point made.
