A Mundane Mystery

The elevator button
  that purports to close the door
Inspires the mind to speculate
  on what it’s really for.
Does it have a hidden function?
  Is it only there for show?
Does it feed the evil dragon
  in the dungeon far below?
Perhaps it signals terrorists,
  the Martians or the Reds.
But I’m pretty sure it’s only there
  for messing with our heads.

  1. Or it may be an experiment,
    a psychological test:
    How many will press the button
    when it clearly is in jest.
    But don’t take this seriously,
    it’s just a thought I tossed.
    Let’s be rational now,
    it’s not like we’re on Lost!
