Poem 423 – 17:00

The grey-suited, grey-faced horde is freed,
It staggers home as to its creed,
But once a year it is allowed
For members of this monochrome crowd
To carry bright paper and shining toys
(Pink for girls, blue for boys,
Orthodoxy is required)
And hope that these things are desired
By families that will gladly see
These grey faces clad in misery.
