ISSUES

Written by: Elizabeth Edemode

Life issues are too numerous
Understanding them is too onerous
Discerning them is too enormous
Dealing with them is too perilous

Love issues are too serious
Without caution they are grievous
Communicating then is humongous
Especially if it’s all amorous

Family issues can be curious
They always make us furious
Sometimes a little bit delirious
In the end we remain unanimous

Funny issues are contagious
Sometimes a bit outrageous
Often times a bit preposterous
And on rare occasion dangerous

Ethical issues are often aurous
Achieving them so fabulous
Anyone who does is glorious
Trying too hard is disastrous

Party issues are so laborious
The results can be tremendous
It helps if the food is delicious
If it flops it could be horrendous

War issues are very vicious
The fighters truly courageous
Enter hoping to be victorious
Each side equally tenacious

Birth issues can be a little hideous
Though most say that it is wonderous
If the road to the ward was atrocious
The outcome is often miraculous

Death issues are always scandalous
If the deceased is indigenous
The ceremony could be stupendous
We hope the end is marvelous

Work issues are a bit ludicrous
It always helps to be courteous
Friction can prove odoriferous
Diplomacy makes it uberous.
