The High Anxiety Drive- a poem
You took it upon yourself
To hold the weight of the world
You volunteered to drive long distance
When you know that causes you anxiety
Then another friend came upon board
So you not only had to drive but you had two guests
Oh what a mess!
Wouldn't it be much more peaceful with one???
This one, he talks and talks...
and it's not so bad but when you drive...you're like ADD...
You can't seem to concentrate....with TALKING.....
so you go CrAzY...trying to block out his YAKING
Oh gee Oh gee Oh gee
What to do? What to do?
Will we make it back safely with the brake pedal covered by your shoe?
Or what to do?
Do i say a prayer
I'm getting nervous!
I feel uncouth..uncomfortable to say the least
Their lives are in my hands....and yet I'm in a state of anxiety!
I am nervous because I'm exhausted and yet I've got a long ways to go
The unhappy memorial was OKay.....
It was Okay....
they're not happy things to go to...are they--no
But we made it through...it's over now...for me anyhow....
So.....let's move on...but--
the CAFFEINE! It's still in my system!
And I TOLD you I shouldn't drink any but you said
Just have one cup!
And it turned into about 2-3
And now...I'm not happy!
It made me irritable that caffeine
Oh what a day
And all over being a passive woman
when I could have said, "No I won't go."
