Monotonous – Word of the Day

A grave is a rut with the ends kicked out.” Earl Nightingale

Mono Tony

He left his grey house
and took his grey life
to the grey building
where he worked in a grey office,
and stifled boredom with
the random interference of yawns,
and watching the spinning pinwheel
of death on his screen,
the only colour in his day,
as the computer mimicked his life.
He took dull reports
and dulled them down
with such exquisite precision
into a dull summary
after which he returned to
his grey house and
his grey life,
yearning for colour.
