Japan, tranquil, koi
Hide From the World
I wanted to sequester myself away today,
Hide from the world and curl up in a ball.
I can’t find the right words I want to say,
I’ve drawn a blank, I’ve hit the wall.
I feel all jumbled inside, that’s why I hide,
I’ll just draw the curtains and have a snooze.
I don’t want to talk, or discuss or confide.
And I certainly don’t want to watch the news.
It’s all doom and gloom and dark despair,
The percentage of people below the poverty line,
And the homelessness; it’s not that I don’t care.
If I had another property, they could have one of mine.
I need to de-stress, to relax and unwind.
Maybe I’ll get some koi carp from Japan
I could gaze at the pond, so tranquil and find
I feel no better off than when I began.
I’ve decided to follow the advice that I said
I’m going to do the one thing that feels right.
I’ll switch off the T.V and head up to bed,
And have a good sleep, so I bid you good night.
