Open your eyes
Stop the noise
Feet on the floor
Jiggle the boys
 
Make the coffee
Let out the dog
Get to the office
Sort through the slog
 
Check the balance
File your forms
Get through the BS
Normative norms

Daily you’ll question
In the back of your mind
Why you feel this way
Most of the time
 
Maybe it’s your fault?
Are you to blame?
Guilt is a sharp tool
(More of the same)
 
Let it surround you
Give in to this
Current sit’ch’ation
Right where it is
 
Be in the moment
It’s better than some
And with atonement
Contentment will come
 
Remember amigo,
You will never tell
The story of days
Of everything’s swell
 
You’ll have a good story
When crisis has passed
And all of the drama
You’ll note till your last
 
With a smile and a twinkle
In an eye clouded up
You’ll fondly remember
How you drank from that cup
 
And still made it through
To your now wizened state
And maybe someone
Will be thrilled you relate
