I would like nothing better

Than to make the newspaper in my hands

Stop flapping so annoyingly.

I would like nothing more

Than to tell the wind and world to get a room

And just leave me alone.

I would like very much

To sit and enjoy the free, mortal time I have

In a calming, still peace.

I would greatly appreciate

If I didn’t have to keep up stupid responsibilities

That keep me from sleep.

But that would be asking

The Totality of All to do Way Too Much

For my lowly self.
