Hurry up and wait!

Is my answer to your asking ‘may I join you”

I’m driving the bus to Crazytown

So many things need doing, not getting done,

but here I am sitting around


Don’t like being dependent on others to get stuff done.

Not a patient man, or particularly cool-able,

The old saying “hurry up and wait" don’t cut it for me

the patience of a drunk slumped under the table


Have no idea what that has to do with anything,

but I had to say something that rhymes

Besides, nothing makes sense in this age of Trump,

in these turbulent and upside down times


So deal with my freakiness and my freaky little poem,

A serious, trained poet I’m not,

I’m just going nuts today. Feeling stress that won’t go away,

I’m just freaking, and freaking a lot!
