Holiday


by Richard M. Prazych

 

Upon returning from a stunning holiday

In a tropical paradise,

He assumed his place at his desk

Like some grotesque, doomed figure

From Dante’s Inferno

Back to the shuffle of papers

And names that would only change

Upon removal to another madhouse

Or the cemetery

 

A college education

Does have its perks!

A keg of beer,

A cold cut platter,

Well wishes and back slaps

And the hope you may one day

Rise above the mediocre world

Of a paper bag lunch existence!
