A poem that describes the plight of people in long queues, mostly of government offices, waiting for hours and wasting time. A commonplace happening we can all relate with.

Lines, unending

Papers flied

Inkpens cried.

Seconds, minutes flowing

Uncontrollably.

Faces, many of them

Some are happy

Some as blank as a stare

But mostly are harrassed

Stressed

Tired of the eternal wait

In the auspices of a tyrant

The den of power puppets

I sat idle for hours

It seems

I will visit the next day

And the days next to it.

Be lost, depressed, exhausted

Fooled, bored, fouled by the smell of cold air, intermittently slept and lingered listlessly

Again.

When will this end?

I even forgot why I sought for the...

Even forgot what I really want.

Same routine.

Same faces.

Same auspices

Same lines,

Unending.
