by Silence

Sitting in a meeting
Bored as I can be
Who is up there speaking?
I can't even see

How is it we got here
Where are we to go
Are we getting fired?
That's for them to know

I look around the room
I see the looks on everyones face
They also wonder why
We are here in this place

Some are thinking of their kids
Or even their grocery list
That one guy looks like he's
Going to hit someone with his fist

I give up on this meeting
I think it's almost done
But now someone else is talking
Quick, someone shoot him with a gun!

Ha ha! How true is that! I could relate to that person wanting to shoot the person speaking. I hate long boring lectures and meetings. I like this poem. Keep it up.
