The office

seemed to me
to be the easiest way
to gather together
a group of people to hate
much of the time was spent
on telling each other
just what it was they were going to do
& how of course
that proposed course of action
made them great people
did I mention the hate?
there were several cliques
the group
the in crowd
& each had some secret signal
that bound them together
politics
shoes
style
education
each reason equally banal
they would huddle together
as if sharing state secrets
or of eternal life
the real purpose being to signal
you were not in this
while the drones
that they looked down upon
those
that actually did the work
despised them into hate
there were always meetings
for them to attend
chip in bright ideas
for others to complete
which they could then lay claim to
&
the hate
was not
unearned
