On an Engagement

We need a lift; my thoughts I mull
Monday – grey skies – business lull
The blank screen quite defies my muse
On what theme can I now enthuse?

Bored, at Facebook posts I gaze
A brief encounter on most days
Weird new compulsion we've acquired
So much is silly, uninspired ..

Then – happiness! A smiling pair
I don't know him, but do know her
Announce that they will tie the knot
Good news is rare so this is hot!

In a business climate off the rails
Two people now have wind in sails
I tap into this golden seam
And all the greyness turns to green!
