a week not going

exactly as planned

even when we go to get

her emergency visa

some guy comes along

and jumps the queue

loudly claiming

he’s supposed to be

in front of a group of us

when i call him out on it

he tries to weasel out of it

bleating “i’m supposed to be here!

i’d never jump the queue!

i have principles!”

but i let it go

not wanting to make things worse

on a day like this

it’s hard to see

the good in the world

i can only hope

tomorrow will be better
