Monday Musing

Taking the day off
Shrugging off the sense of work
Blackberry beckons

Itemize the list
of actions that justified
this Monday reprieve

Do each one before
lunchtime if you find you can
Then you might relax

Telephone rings out
Breaks you from your reverie
Work emergency

Is it better then,
to feel indispensable
than to be forgot?

No matter, today
better to be what we are
than what we are not
