All work and no play

Clown nose in a three piece suit
Carrying on conversations about the news
Life is serious business he says, straight faced

I smile and nod, a gentle reminder
That multi-tasking, while required, isn’t effective
It’s inefficient
Yet suffices to meet the inner
And outer demands of the world

From space we are viewed
As mere specks of dust
Flakes of skin on a flea

Smaller than the atoms on a grain of sand
Slowly ticking away
A million miles a minute.
