that kind of morning
walking the length of the plant
in firefighting mode

"We're Down Hard" as I come in
joy and rapture......

a root cause presents itself
the goodness of the Lord

all during the shift
holding my breath
against doing well

getting the final okay
for three days off

Murphy's law in full effect
hour before shift's end

seeing what the weekend holds
truth vs. fiction

to all my piles
