Me and my stress
Stress and tension is the order of the day
What am I to do, just want to pay my way?
Everybody wants a piece of the action
No one is willing to give me some attention
I work all the hours but the bank don`t care
Try to pay my bills, but end up in despair
Van needs fixing, there`s so much that`s to be done
All this stress and strain, there`s no time to have fun
Bankruptcy an option I really do not need
Unfortunately I`m stubborn, so I will not plead
Think the world`s against me, but do I give a toss ?
Couldn`t give a monkeys, cos I know I`m the boss !
I needed some ideas for emotions and a friend asked if I would write a poem about his stress and this was the result. He is still plodding along and never gave in. He thought the poem was rather funny !!
