Tony was bored, so he just sat there
Minding his own business, which wasn’t
booming, because nobody
buys “White Out” anymore –
nobody owns a typewriter.
He tried to remarket it,
but adding the words
didn’t help sales.
He hung a sign on the door.
He closed early.
There was an auction he wished
but when he arrived,
he noted tension in the air, the room
began to fill with fear.
Tony became antsy, knocked down
an oversized brandy snifter which broke
it had been filled with marbles, which
rolled all over the floor.
Everyone went quiet.
Looked bored. Chewed gum
– they didn’t have apples.
When, Tony made the decision to call it a day,
When, he thought that maybe he could sell gum.
