Fret

Perhaps you’ve such regrets
A disposition sour
By the weather, cold and dour
So forgetful of the sun in alleys wet

Perhaps you feel beset
By forces cruel in power
Ever harsh with eyes that glower
Til you see your joy a burning cigarette

Perhaps you’re so upset
For there beneath a tower
Do you count your change and hours
Seeing every gain as precedence to debt

Perhaps you need forget
The woes for which you scour
Take a moment, smell the flowers
Rest your weary head, my dear, try not to fret

About A. P. Christopher

I'm a cynic, a nihilist, and a pessimist. I'm a hermit filling the interior walls of my empty cavern with the words and pictures of a mind adrift in disparity. I also like lifting weights.
