Jury Duty

 Not sure why the spacing is messed up. I’ll fix it later.

Jury Duty - Part One

Sunrise was nice, 

Driving east with the low sun a fireball.

Blinding light,

Not so nice.

The jury room is filling up,

Tapping toes,

Bouncing knees,

Books, reading glasses,

A shortage of clipboards.

Not everyone bothered to fill out the forms in advance.

Round trip mileage recorded,

Debit cards in hand.

Let’s get this show started.
