There was the morning commute
With lots and lots of people
So many in a hurry
Somewhere to go
Something to do
money to be earned
Lots of excuse mes and pardon mes and oh his
and staring at cell phones and sighing
and yawning and suppressing flatulence
and pondering and planning and wondering and wishing
Oh yeah the wishing
Lot of wishing
We all do that
Don’t we
Wish this wish that wish I was wish I wasn’t
Wish she would wish she wouldn’t
Wish it would wish it wouldn’t
If if if if
But first
Have an important meeting

String Beans

There are string beans on the plate
They are next to the mashed potatoes
They wait expectantly to be eaten
But oh they are subtle just biding their time
They are a sharp green and skinny
It's difficult to tell if they are limp or hard
Only a bite will tell
Will they be eaten or left to be scraped into the compost?
We must wait to see
