The Bench

The Bench

A Bench has no say

About who ends up on it

Unwilling party guest,

Uncomfortable bed,

Or public stage,

Every day the same

As the day before the day before

Its limitless endurance

Imparts a sense of dignity

To those that seek its refuge

Wedged together

Heads swaying

To the rhythm of the city

Passing by
