The First Day Back to Work

was rough

I’d slept in 

the last three weeks

so that time blurred together

And every day was enjoyable


I arrived in the library for the “Why” speech

It was original five years ago

but they keep using the same theme

over and over again


My energy was high

I couldn’t wait to socialize

“How was your summer?” I asked

“Oh, you know, I like to watch the news in the morning and then my wife puts me to work,” said Mr. Baines.

“Did you do anything fun?”

He stopped for a moment and thought… “Well I can’t think of anything that stands out,” he said.

We were talking about three months that went by and he couldn’t remember one instance of having a good time.

This is typical, zombie-like behavior.
