Super Monday: back-to-work day,
expecting fires to put out.
Sure enough: even before the coffee's brewed,
insistent strobes and bells announce emergency.

Donning silly vest and hat,
Counting the morning people leaving,
Accounting for those not yet present,
Who won't need to chill outside while false alarm clears.

Coffee is ready, let the real fires begin.
