My days
Have always
Been the same
When it comes
To work
Same crap
Different day
Come to work
Leave work
Mind my own business
I don’t waste
Precious time
To ask
How are you doing
What are you up to
How was your weekend
Where are you going
After work
It’s not my business
I don’t believe in
Idol conversation
That I have
No interest in
Getting to know those
That are not
Interested
In getting to know me
Beyond what they hear
From silly ninnies
That have never
Sat down
And had
A conversation with me
Yet always
Have an opinion
About who I am
What I’ve done
Who I’m with
If I’m a liar
Or someone crazy
Needing to be committed
I choose my friends
Carefully
Small circle
Easy to know
Who has betrayed me
I avoid any
Unnecessary spotlight
Being photographed
With people
I don’t care for
To keep from
Answering questions
Or someone assuming
I am friends with them
I keep in my place
Staying under the radar
Almost invisible
Blending in

Like a chameleon
But when I need to
I will be ferocious
Defending myself
From people
Taking
My kindness
For weakness
I will
Make waves
That will drown
Cities
So I rather
Walk a straight line
Staying in my lane
Doing what I was paid to do
Taking care of my customers
Making their day
A little better
Good service
Lots of laughter
Doing over and beyond
Then shut it off
After I’ve clocked
Out
Going home to my life
Don’t think
I’m heartless
When someone
I worked with
Ask for help
I will spring
Into action
Helping them out
It’s in my job description
To be a team player
And once the task
Is complete
I will retreat
Back into
My solitude
Working to get things
Ready before
The next rush
It’s called planning
Organization
And a stress reducer
Being everready
Not caught slipping
And being overwhelmed
Taking the day
I’ve been handed
And making it easier
