Current Thoughts of a Grumpy Person: Breathing By June
There is fuzz on my sweater
My house is cold.
The fridge lacks leftovers to find dinner among
I'm fed up with screens
Word thinks Spanish words are spelled wrong
It is rainy and wet
and windy and cold
and homework about climate change, natural disasters, anthropogenic sources of
pollution, toxic materials, destroyed habitats
species on their ways to extinctions
lack of food
lack of water
lack of plant life in soil
too many humans
too many particles of CO2
too many fossil fuels
too many non renewable resources
what the freaking, WHAT are we thinking?
are we thinking?
how many of us are thinking?ok. I'll think instead of complain.
Better-- I'll act.
I just remembered--
I have so many tests and hurdles to clear at the end of this school year
let me just finish studying for the next fifty weeks
then, don't forget, I have friends-- Let's get together!
Wait, nope now you've graduated high school and you're in a new place.
Make friends with these people!
But each of them just makes me look back-- this one's got her smile...
this one's got his ears
that one reminds me of another friend........
Thanks junior year.
If I am still breathing by June, I'll thank someone-- but certainly not you.
