Remedy - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No time for nonsense,
Slipped that monkey off my back!
I caught it snoring comfortably...
And that's when I decided
To get rid of it like a sneeze attack!
It became too familiar,
Like old shoes I had to wear.
I got accustomed to hearing complaints...
And thought I too had blues to share!
But when I felt that burden ease,
I picked it up and kicked it out like trash!
No time for nonsense,
Slipped that monkey off my back!
I caught it snoring comfortably...
And that's when I decided
To get rid of it like a sneeze attack!
I've got a remedy ready and willing to use too,
If ever it decides it's going to catch me by surprise!
