Five o'clock and work is done, fatigue dissolves in cheer

Colleagues shuffle paper ritualistically

Pleasant words exchanged to gloss the etiquette veneer

Conversations lack detail with insincerity

Because...

 

Driving home, the radio pretends to be your friend

Chirpy voices chatter, giggle, play uplifting beats

Traffic news informs of jams and crashes - queues extend

Never noting maimed and mangled bodies in the streets

Because nobody...

 

Home at last, the wife and kids' performance well rehearsed

Smiling, gay, polite enquiries - 'So, how was your day?'

'Lovely dear, the best of days'. In fact, it was the worst.

Neither truth nor feelings speak, to threaten disarray

Because nobody cares.
