I think the world is going bonkers today

A response to the challenge to write a poem beginning with the line ‘I think the world is going bonkers today’.

I think the world is going bonkers today:
I wandered around my place of work
on the hunt for a lunch break chum.
But instead of yeses, sure things or why nots,
the crowd just stayed silent;
Tutting at the penis hanging from my flies.
