team meeting

The routine
begins with pastries
and tea, to warm us up
for our work, and really,
to one another.
Sharing updates,
kvetching. Team-building.

Refilled cup of tea
means just at the end
I feel the need to pee.
Urgently.
I think I can make it.
At the close, we thank
one another. And someone
receives the gold star.
I wish it was me.

Today, Mary challenges the Real Toads to write about the ordinary, with the hope of inspiring extraordinary poetry. Not sure this is extraordinary, but here it is.
