The Interview

They asked a question
but I’m  not listening.

A voice in my head
is too busy whispering.

What if they think
that I am a fool?

Surely they wouldn’t
be that cruel.

Looking at their mouths,
I know they’re speaking

but I can’t hear
and its got me freaking.

Smile politely
and nod your head,

don’t let them think
that your brain is dead.

Slow your breath
in and out,

focus on a point
and try not to shout.

Ten minutes
is all it will take,

think of all
the money you can make.
