Nine Days Off

High fives.
Jive talkin'.
I get off at five.

Five is dark these days,
thriving is scarcer and
scarcer.

Deprivation has lots of syllables.
So many that it distracts from contemptible
WAIT!  That sounds judgmental.

I don't want to sound that way.

So I will make my way.
Hope somebody's god grants me
patience!
