Perfunctory nod

blessed
with the presence of the
Veep;
lunch;
FedEx truck
on the street…BEEP!
exhaust fumes
reek.

but the sandwich meat…
the sandwich meat…

she’s smarter than me
funnier than I am
harder worker than me
that’s why she’s the Veep
and I’m just the minion
creep….but maybe
one
day
I’ll make the same leap.

she stole my idea
of
a
hashtag tweet
(what a sneak!)

we
reap
respect
as we
stroll
the
hallway

so many perfunctory
nods

everyone is automated

I’ll
take
my
scotch
neat;
lunch
with
the
Veep:

this memory is one…

I think I’ll keep.
