The Mockery of Minutes

Arjun Basu
Apr 25, 2023

A meeting is an eternity

And though dependant

on dates

on time

and hours

and minutes

The clock mocks and never moves

Much like the word minutes,

A meeting is a mockery

Of our human condition

Created by us

Because we love ourselves that much

And that little

And not at all.
