Haibun: ‘Black Fridays’

Fridays were special,
work was plentiful;
when the job centre found you.

Now just any other day —
yet blacker,
more dastardly,

that Friday feeling
banished forever
to that distant land

called happiness.

Gold fish in a bowl
Endless demented circling
Who’s the first to speak?
