A Wake

by Reign

This morning,

while searching for an anchor,

the headline flashed,

flooding the screen,

"From War head

to missile toe".

Sound bite size.

A perfect snack.

From magazines

to clips,


to bomb blasts

and back.

It's almost 6,

time for work,

I watch pressed suits and wrinkled faces

continue their attack.

             "Just-us against the world!?"

I can't stand the new supervisor at the job.

                     "_.Coup, wait?!"

New management is sure to mean new layoffs.

                      "It' s a damn lie!"

I think I'll call in sick

and go back to bed.
