Soon I set off

I wondered why I wasn*t looking forward to this experience.  It*s not the plastic chairs.  Last time I did this I had just started driving again.  Last time I did this every channel offered Sandy Hook.  I sat with a group of strangers having their cars fixed.  Time to gird my loins.

Soon I set off
To get the oil changed.
I will sit with everyone else
Who waits,
TV blaring.
The complicated snack machine.
The plastic covered chairs.
The people
All who wait.
Some will be bored,
Some will sit
With present eyes.

Last time I did this
I watched two hours
As Sandy Hook developed.
Then they came and told me
The car was ready
To go home.
