Munday on Monday: ‘Closed’

Updated: 2013-11-25T05:15:29Z


To governmental agency

I wend my way and park;

Abrupt I stop — the door is locked,

The office shuttered, dark

And taped to door: A little sign

(Which brings a minor laugh):

“CLOSED,” it says, “From Noon to Two

For Training” (of the staff.)

My skepticism, seems, was shared

(We cynics count a bunch);

Some wag crossed out the last two words

And wrote instead, “For Lunch.”
