Mind the gap they warn

Not a good idea to fall

Not here

You're already in the underground

Do you mind? They supposedly ask

Holding their glass

Sitting down at your table

You're out of your mind!

They mindlessly declare

When you enthusistically share your out of the way plans

Mind you, they think out aloud

I do admire your courage

It's just a matter of mind over matter

Pipes up a voice in the midst of the chatter

Trying to be kind

While you sit silently in the middle of all of this

Repeating your mantra

This, This, This...

Your ego quietly congratulating itself for your mindfulness
