I’m in a queue,
One of those ones where the guy at the front
Wants more than the rest of us.
Each person holds his/her employment book.
We want to register,
Get our social security
Life awaits us,
But now we are stuck in limbo.
The guy at the head of the line has a complication
He is taking time
My life is fading away
I’m aging as I stand here,
Surely there must be more staff?
The line edges one closer,
We call it the Unemployment Shuffle.
We wait and wait.
Finally, I’m released,
Outside the sun is shining,
I breathe deeply, free,
I enter the bank,
There another wait awaits me.
Such is life!

It’s never-ending at times. You write of the frustration well.
Thanks so much VJ
That’s life. Very true.
It’s an everyday thing isn’t it?
It sure is. Life has a pace all it’s own.
One wonders how many hours… days?… we waste standing in queues. Though is it wasted? Sure, we might be away doing something else, yet there must be a reason we’re in that queue, some benefit we hope to achieve, and without the queue, we wouldn’t acquire whatever that benefit.
That’s a very philosophical way of viewing the issue when often if we got ourselves organised and out of bed earlier we may well avoid these occasions.
I’m an early bird. But there are still times I must queue.
I’m very impatient. I hate waiting for buses, and I really hate being in queues, especially if they don’t seem to be moving…
Unfortunately I have the same reaction.
Profoundly philosophical 👏
