Grimace


Hard to grin and bear-
it is alright to grimace,
we are but human.
*************************************
'Out of order' sign
hangs, morning smile upside down,
feet groan their way up.

  1. LOL. Grimace means facial expression of disgust. But if you are facing in front of your boss what will you do? Just grin Fxxx. Just the thought came to my mind.

  2. Nice! I really like the "we are only human". It's so hard to go against our nature.
