Poetry in the Post Office
Poetry in the Post Office:

Poetry in the Post Office is perfectly planned
When every position is constantly manned.
The cashier counts out notes
At a choreographed pace..
Her fingers may slip if she tries to race.
An inland parcel to weigh on the scales
It’s a large letter if through the slot it sails.
With a gentle tap on the computer keys
The experienced clerk is at her ease.
