Geoff Munro

Geoff Munro expired on the Number 60 bus
sometime between 1997 and 2005,
nobody noticed he’d died.

Serving a sentence, so terminally dulled,
inoculated against colour, against fun, against life
time dimmed the light in his eyes.

Allocated standard issue fatigue
for a job that he came to despise;
no innovation, no compromise.

Permanently gasping for untainted air,
relentlessly throttled by process,
watching the clock until home-time arrives.

Geoff Munro still rides that same bus,
same time, same seat, same people,
unaware he’s no longer alive.

About George Fripley
I am a writer who enjoys writing humour, satire, poetry and sometimes a bit of philosophy. I live in Perth, Western Australia and occasionally get a poem or article published. It's all good fun! I have two books available for unwary readers, Grudges, Rumours and Drama Queens- The Civil Servant's Manual (This contains all that anybody could ever want to know about why government runs so slowly) and More Gravy Please! - the Politician's Handbook. (available through Amazon). Real name Peter Tapsell...just started off writing under a pseudonym and kept going.
