I’ve had enough from her
Don’t bother me with trivia.
My blood churns with perfect
anger because the stupid
are allowed to roam.
I cannot hope for easy
work or peaceful, subtle
love and life
because I can tolerate
And failure reigns
So let’s rephrase the problem, please
Re-iterate the task anew and learn from
what we just failed to do.
I’ll calm my nerves and let it go–
You call me up; I’ll skirt the row
And be glad that the year will end
With kids I love, with love of friends,
With family dear, with you.
