Elevator, Elevator

Elevator, elevator One of the most awkward places you can be Standing, crowded much too close to me Should you say hello or just keep to yourself? So you stand there stiff resembling a doll on a shelf Elevator, elevator A sudden stench encompasses the whole box People look around like they’ve caught the chicken pox The air is thick with unease and irritability Everyone’s in a rush, utilizing their capability Elevator, elevator After what seems to be millennia the box stops abruptly Another stop, still standing waiting for the lobby Irish man breaks the silence with a witty comment Its just like the movies –elevator ineptness is his vent
