Murmuration – DP

Another word prompt I almost skipped… not a word I use in everyday language at all.  This was the best I could do tonight.


At the company party

The murmuration of small talk

Drifts across the room

Little bits of words

Spoken with polite tones

All for a façade of perfection

Words spoken to the boss

For a better promotion

Trying to stop a layoff

To gain a raise

All the murmurs funnel together

Sounding like a distant song

Out of tune

Out of rhythm

Out of time
