Waiting - Poem by Mark Normand

I'm here at the front of the back of the line,
I was last but I think I'll go next.
I've been here so long it seems like forever,
I think it's time I sat down to rest.
When my number is called, and they ask me my
name, I'm not sure what I will say.
I guess I will tell them that I'm just the guy
who has been waiting here all damn day

    A great poem, those lines waiting get longer each day or each time we go somewhere, post office is the worst (Report) Reply

    Cute, cute. I like it and the message has a commiseration that appeals.I might change the grammar of the last line to read. Who's been waiting here all the damn day.
