Some folks fuss so much about things that don't matter. Mrs Pringle is one of them and she sure has lots to whine about. But does it help in the wrong run?

Mrs Pringle’s Day
Mrs Pringle lost sweat and blood
Fussing over every little stuff
A stranded hair here and there
Nagging and cursing and swearing
A day before a social call
She fussed about one and all
Seeing no good in anything
As her friend uttered not a word
Silence jelled her long time friend
Whose bottling up was brought to an end
To the torture she bore all these years
Pleasing Mrs Pringle her friend
So she cracked into pieces
And left Mrs Pringle raging
Nagging and cursing and swearing
At a friend who let had her down
