Eternal rest looms closer
As each new dawn comes ‘round;
Tick tock goes the clock…
Does the world get you down?
Every day, endless tasks await,
Stress piled on stress…
Sometimes the whole mess
Explodes into disaster.
Really, who wants salad now, or
Teriyaki fish and a sensible rice dish?
No. We need a decadent pastry puff,
Luscious ladyfingers, scrumptious spumoni,
Maybe just a simple jar
Of Nutella. Get those sugar highs
Before the clock runs out.
Image is mine.
