Sniffing, snorting, sneezing,

Sick people wheezing,

The children whisper,

They don’t know the rules,

Don’t listen,

Blurt out answers,

Not one raise of the hand.

They won’t leave me alone,

Anywhere, everyone.

Some control, others don’t know,

Lots of things they need.

Funky smells,

Donald Trump yells.

Why can’t they just go away?

I’m waiting,

No phone calls, not showing up,


Change their mind.


I just want to be alone now.
