key to the universe

Receptionists have the key to the universe,
They are the gatekeepers to the cubified and enclosed
Drones, the sorters and dispersers of
Mail and special deliveries,
Judge jury and executioner of the waiting room.
They silently and sacredly monitor
The comings and goings
Of all employees, witness to
The back door firings, the secret upstairs office hirings,
Water cooler romance on the most discreet of levels
Message taker, covert info relayer and
Friend and confidant, speak their mind
Oracle of truth, knowledge and guidance

offering blessings of encouragement and reinforcement,
To both the high powered and unemployed,
Travel weary, nervous and anxious,

Frazzled, lost
and the confused.
