Xanthophyll Cycle

all the ink cartridges at Office Depot
expanded at the same time
the management meeting was cancelled
and your portmanteau of "upsell" and "comfort"
would never be heard by the living
it seems the change in barometric pressure
was the first sign of the apocalypse
the other signs came in quick succession
Tammy the ignorant sales associate collapsed
and her body exploded into hundreds of poisonous snakes
while the DeskMate Calendar display became wholly disorganized
making it difficult to discern whether the weeks would begin with Sunday
or Monday
and as the air became flame and the parking lots boiled
the last thought you had was of your first Epson MX-80 dot matrix printer
and how that chattery-zippy sound was really comforting

Selling your ideas is like selling your child. Rent your child and keep your thoughts to yourself!
