Stress sick

Stress sick
Coughing crammed calendar
Burnt out busy
Balancing bizerk.

Tonight a lawyer is helping us with our wills.
Coincidence, I tell myself.

Mandela is dying,
So too is Labor’s reign.
GeeBee is aging,
As am I.

Our house is being smashed
And then repaired.
Under a Head Builder’s watch.

No doubt that’s what happening to me.
But there are no permits or plans.
And I guess I’m the Head Builder.

Work will wait
Without me.

I need to take better care of myself.
