White hands, black hands and other coloured hands
Descriptions we dance with
Accompanying smells. Sweats
and perfumes in an odious mix
The gains of corporations

Meetings. Gesticulations
Hands flailing, lips quavering
Everyone has to talk
Silence means you’re either lost or stupid
Amplified by the “everyone is important” code

We spew forth in numbers
Hours roll by
We adjourn to congregate once more
The gains of corporations
