Park Bench 

“Ouch! Come on, you again? Why do you keep coming to me to sit? I don’t know why you choose me when there are all those other benches sitting around. I thought I was full just a few minutes ago. What did you say? This bench was empty? Are you saying I am not worth more than a place to sit?” 

Ten minutes later… 

“Phew! Thank you for getting up! I can’t believe that I have to withstand all of the weight on my legs. 
Didn’t you know that I have other people to support?”  

Finally, alone.
