They gather in a circle.
The coffee brews a sizzling tongue
hot enough to spill all the tea.
Watch them batter in office gossip
in hopes of boosting their standing
in the rat race.
They forget we are all just clogs
Just a mere statistic.
Yet they keep airing dirty laundry.
Apparently, the scum of a colleague
makes one appear squeaky clean.
We all have dirt on each other.
Some just choose to sip their tea
