Doldrums

We dramatize our problems,
As well as the solutions of oracles.
What if you are just a boring creature,
And your outcomes match your mean?

Perhaps the psychic’s: “Disaster today.”
Was dropping a spoon,
And needing a new one,
To eat breakfast.

Of course it cannot be; we are very important:

So we spend an entire day,
Trying unnecessarily
Not to die.

I write stuff when something begs to me to write. The goal is to write ten-thousand things before I die. I tend to be morbid, reflective and personal.
