October 27: Poor Me Syndrome

When naps are insufficient to restore
One’s equipoise and sordid things enthrall,
And each contentious point makes one’s pride sore-
The calendar illuminates it all.

When copious caffeine gives one the shakes,
From snide remarks it’s harder to abstain,
And twaddle seems to have the highest stakes-
The calendar endeavors to explain:

Daily routines obscure the passing time
And pharmaceuticals can regulate
Sans deference to nature, and so I’m
Oblivious until I see the date.

And once I’ve clarified my skewed perception,
I celebrate another misconception.
