PAD - DAY 28. Standing Up to Adversity in the Workplace


No Joke

Around the coffee machine
The drip
Of caffeinated talk
Manic
And malignant
Laughter
As one silent
Drinker puts down
The cup with a trembly hand
And asks – in a voice rippling
Loud in the sudden silence

“What – is - funny – about - that?”

  1. The workplace - generally an arena for cruel cliques to play their cruel games - I hate staff politics.

    Good on him/her for standing up!
