Tonight I need to immerse myself in shit.
Not shit of the wallowing kind
just the usual trash
I thought I should make it clear
because I sense that you’re struggling
to let go.
The kids are asleep, the washing in piles.
It’s not that i’m tired –
I don’t even have a headache
[for a change]
I just can’t be bothered.
Granted it’s a difficult ask for the likes of you
if you can just lay off
for an hour, a minute, a second even –
it would help.
You see, I’m feeling more fragile than usual
and with too much exertion baby,
I might just very well
Tonight I just need to immerse myself in shit.
I’ll diarise to think again
