Uncomfortable silence

She took her seat next to me

Another one awaiting the (bad) news-

she said aloud

The silence was deafening

Heads raised from perusing out of date magazines

Others disturbed while reading from their kindle

Others with blank stares

Appeared to be unmoved

The T.V. hanging on the wall-

the news reader telling all who wished to listen

and those who couldn’t be bothered

the bad news of the day.

Doctors surgeries, are not happy places?

      1. Unfortunately once you reach that certain age that consists of a 7 and 0 you have to sit a medical, prior to that they just hand you one every 10 years without ever asking a question – peculiar or what??
