Sally's Fortune Cookies

Sally's broken fortune cookies
are piling in the back.

Orders being broken
by men who won't take flack.

Boxes dropped by workers
anxious to get home,

cracking Sally's cookies
and leaving them like Rome.

In time I'll go for coffee
when Sally's counting pieces.

With luck she'll give me several
until the dropping ceases.

They'll come in tiny bundles
wrapped in plastic bags;

that some will come with fortunes
and some will be in rags.

The truth is that they're tasty
and worthy of their ranks.

I'll have to say my blessings
and Sally: say my thanks.
