The Blue Funk Blahs

It's so hard, sometimes
To remove this cerement 
To muster a veritable smile
To schlepp out of the sediment

It will end, I know
When authentic smiles will replace
The disingenuous air
I bedaub to my face 

The crazy part is, it seems
That the solution to my abasement 
Though well within my clout
Looms just far of my embracement 

Motivation! To do the work
For which I have the skill
Seems lacking in my repertoire
As does the supportive shill
