Predisposed to sadness

is a mood around today

the impulse of responsiveness

where bad vibes find a way

of  saddening the individual

who demonstrates  that pain

Creates  a kind of  pathos

where things just feel in vain


an overwhelming feeling

That harbours  doubt and woe

Unconscious to ones surroundings

a bit of a shit show

everything is going wrong

uninspired are thee

neglected and spiritless

stagnating actually


you need some life breathed into you

nirvana equally

other people seem well- pleased

in their lives compared to thee

an illness gets the better

angst ridden how you feel

victimized and martyred

by the government unreal


the hopelessness of worrying

stuck at home all day

on the rack in torment

really at the way

harassment and grimness

has taken over life

the bitter pill is everywhere

Its gruelling all the strife


and nothing really joyous

no blessings around

old wounds feel reopened

just covering old ground

and no consolation

no break in  the cloud

nothing to relieve the burden

Apparently the  crowd


neglecting  the intensity

sees alacrity

further from your demeanour

than it is  your want to be

and so the need for laughter

actually comes to mind

a  dose of exultation

if you could only find


looking in the mirror

and laughing once or twice

it may broaden your outlook

and maybe even thrice

You pinch your  cheeks, they redden

a blush of joy returns

You are  sitting there

Upon your own

with a feeling that  just burns


and have waved away despair

feeling sorry for  yourself

not as important as before

the languor and  fatigue

is up and gone

and you feel sure


the wit that came to visit you

a kind of pleasantry

forced a glint of laughter

a cosmic turn now be

Brightening your outlook

the lockdowns of before

largely they had gone away

and now you could ignore





despondency and pessimism

Lately  on tv

fear mongering and fake news

Switching off the BBC


Already you  feel better

and £159 better off

to go towards your higher gas bills
