When times are tough @nickcbooks
When times are tough,
And things go badly,
And we respond with panic and stuff,
The result can only be more pain… sadly.
We put such stock in a thing called money
And yes without, it is a struggle.
Life’s quest for cash is pretty funny –
When all is done, it leaves but rubble.
Time is short and life is sweet,
But all those voices with vested interest
Shout and spout and rage and tweet.
To absorb their sh*t just leaves us listless.
So when you wake, embrace the day!
Leave the news and leave the babble.
Leave the gadgets where they lay,
Step outside, take time, forget the rabble.
Yes, this won’t put food on table,
But to worry about what can’t be helped
Will torture us, our minds disable.
Rely on YOU, and better the cards you’ll be dealt!
