the greeter

this place is crowded
standing room only
and they just keep coming
that one way ladder
forcing everyone to slither
sideways to make more room
some people slink along
slow and quiet and try to
melt away into the crowd
others come kicking and
screaming gathering handfuls
of splinters as they go
and some even take a
flying leap assuming
someone else will break
their fall
(i’ve seen that and it ain’t
pretty) while
i stand just left
of the bottom rung
handing out flyers
all prettied up and
professionally designed
welcome to utopia
we’ve got 397
flavors and
they’re all called

Linking up with the fabulous dVerse poets for Open Link Night, join us!
