FRIGIDNESS AS HAIKU

FRIGIDNESS AS HAIKU

 

Polar vortex drift,

Meteorologist-coined words…

Suffering in air.

Jet streams shifting routes,

Highs and Lows dancing Foxtrot…

Twirling fronts curtsey.

Frigid air frosts lungs,

Sales of expectorant rise…

Obama claims new jobs.

WORK DICHOTOMY AND THE DIABETIC

WORK DICHOTOMY AND THE DIABETIC

 

He’s struggling with blood sugar levels,

Trying to face his devils…

To test very much

Requires the bucks

To properly finance health revels.

Symptoms are often the same,

Whether high or low in the game…

Sweat and jitters

And vision that glitters

This disease is worthy of the name.

Tonight he’s feeling down,

No replacement yet has been found…

For the man fired

In December transpired

To upset all vacation grounds.

He feels he’s the only one

Around when training is done…

Always second shift,

His may be a gift

But it rarely if ever is fun.

He’s let himself be used

By others and feels abused…

They fake datum,

He can’t get at them

For getting along is what he’d choose.

Maybe he feels put on, a little,

Not getting much sleep in the middle…

Of a long week

More sleep to seek,

So he won’t fall asleep at the griddle!
