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Heads raised from perusing out of date magazines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?
