Bodies at an Exhibition

just another corporate drone
stuffing the body bags
and smiling for the cameras
this disjointed organization
the head never knows
where the toes want to go
15 minutes behind schedule
and an hour off the clock
we nod as if we know
we all have the same bones
to pick with this grand world
a name for everything
but a blank mind needs ink
to see is to know
but letters are a thing
we no longer count upon
