DEAR MRS ANXIETY

DEAR MRS ANXIETY
PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK
EVERY NIGHT I SWALLOW
THE PILLS THEY HAVE ME TAKE
I GO TO MY BED EARLY
I’VE STOPPED WATCHING THE NEWS
I ONLY SMOKE OCCASIONALLY AND
I’VE CUT RIGHT DOWN ON THE BOOZE
 
MY BODY FEELS LIKE SOMEONE ELSE
MY WORDS CAN’T FIND MY MOUTH
I WANT TO BE ALONE
AND NEVER LEAVE MY HOUSE
GIVE ME BACK MY SPIRIT
AND A BIT OF SLEEP WON’T HURT
I’VE GOT MOUTHS TO FEED
I NEED TO GO TO WORK
 
I’VE REALLY DONE QUITE WELL
40 YEARS THIS WAY
BUT NOW IT’S GOT TOO MUCH FOR ME
PLEASE JUST  GO AWAY
YES, THANKYOU FOR THE HIGHS
AND THE ‘CREATIVITY’
BUT CAN I HAVE SOME PEACE NOW?
CAN YOU LET ME BE?
