I am Tired:
of being angry about houses
I don't have the tools to rebuild.
I'm tired of waiting for flowers
to arrive. Tired of looking

Tired of counting and counting,
and counting things I need to be
counting. Tired of math
and of language, tired of all
the things I don't know. Tired
of not sleeping enough
and of sleeping too much.
Tired of sleeping around. Tired
of Quit Playing Around And Get
Back To Work. Tired of
Just Because You Write A Thing
Doesn't Make It True.
Tired of Mr Right Just Kidding Mr
Wrong All Along. Tired of politics
and people tired of breathing air.
Tired of ain't got what I need, tired
of cain't get what I want. Tired
of wanting and needing at all.
Tired of pay this and buy that and earn
earn earn tired of disparity
tired of depression and anxiety
tired of writing
