Muted

A question was thrown at me
My answer was lost in silence

Friends poured forth pleasantaries
I smiled weakly in return

My boss asked for an estimate
And I emailed my answer

I ate the lunch which was served
Without making any demands

Inquiries, questions and condolences
I replied in tenorless single syllables

The world is a hard place to live in
When you have lost your throat to soreness!
