dunkin donuts coffee
and lime green office chairs
sitting in a boardroom
in the town of who knows where.

did i just say boardroom?
i actually meant 'bored'
and it's only 10 am
- dear lord.

is it allergies
that are making me sneeze?
or am i reacting to various stupidities -
like working past eleven,
six days out of seven
finding finances bleak
though we got paid last week
or wondering about
those i should do without,
is it dumb things such as these
or just allergies?

the world is out there getting drunk
and i am staying in
if this is a fun test, i guess i flunk
but if top prize is a headache
i win.

on scoring

there is no sport rougher
than the sport of romance,
no exercise tougher
than this game of chance,
there's falling and mauling,
bruises, fatigue --
and so often you're playing in
an out-of-your-league.
