It Sucks

It sucks... The batteries in my mouse are dead and abused the charge expelled from too much random use, I should ,I guess be more grateful of that which with I'm blessed. It sucks... The corn and sunflowers once tall and beautiful lay on the ground pressed down by heat and rain while bills arrive each and every day still dutiful as the checkbook balance gets lower than its gain. It sucks... The squirrels took a bite out of all my tomatoes, and the squash rot draws the flies the carrots and radishes hide like potatoes what did I do wrong and why? It sucks... The bees buzz doesn't come to flower anymore. the butterflies flit and flutter hurriedly away standing looking out the back door the neighborhood gets more quiet every day. It sucks... The rose petals fall and not a bud remains the baby birds have all flown the nests when winds and clouds shed torrential rains as every heart tries to handle the Covid tests. It sucks... Summer burning, humidity unbearable and sequestered here at home marketers call on the phone hysterical and tv is the same old movies while I'm home alone. It sucks... Being young and foolish, taking too long to grow, getting old comes too fast and time grows shorter in truth, everything just sucks you well know even children long to go back to school forsooth. It sucks ... The man up on the hill is such a fool never recognizing anyone else's need it sucks that he isn't very well schooled as American history is on its knees and bleeds, Random Thoughts on things that suck - big time for Kai Michael Neumann's contest It Sucks
