They just

They just get on with it:
wearing trousers, sipping mint tea,
eating careless breakfasts,
colour coding spreadsheets,
nodding when spoken to,
not letting dirt sit on their shoes,
rearranging lanyards around their necks.
They just get on with it:
breathing, moving, blinking,
listening, getting out of bed.
They just. Get on with it.
