Flat Tones


Sitting reluctantly through another cinco de mayo

Music is fine and upbeat, yet we can do without
the many voices that are flat and hitting our ear

Suffering silently, hoping, wishing, praying for
an end of this dismal performance.
Tactfully smiling, clapping on cue, minds in a
quandary, trying to be nice and not walk out of
the room.
