Drifting Sanity
By Tara Nicole Walker

Must you whine in my ear
Small One?
I'm doing the best that I can
Your agonic tones
Are wearing on my last of nerves
You're going to set me into an ictus
If you keep complaining
The way that you are
Your obtuse questions
Are slowly driving me
Out of my mind
Don't balk while I pull
At your hand
I've got places to go
And I've got things to do
Please spare me the crocodile tears
I love you dearly
But today has been long
And my sanity is drifting away
