Compensations

Compensations blind

to little blighters,

Irritations,

never noticed

at the start,

Compensations mask

persistent buggers,

Noted,

but ignored,

with all your heart.

Compensations ease

the little rotters,

Irritating,

 itching

to be scratched,

But, bother,

though the beggars

bug and bite you,

Compensations speak

and try to patch.

Compensations pander

mere intentions,

Overlook,

accept,

as best they can,

Compensations balk

at intervention,

Psychoanalyse

each woman,

every man.

Compensations level

rough roads travelled,

Pave the way,

and pad

the journey forth,

Compensations wear

a stoic face mask,

In silence,

loudly question,

what they’re worth.

Compensations cry,

just retribution,

Relinquish

favour feathered,

worn thin,

Compensations rise,

seek soft reunion,

But, compensations,

Fuck ’em,

They don’t win.

  1. Indeed! It seems to me, however, that eventually these ‘resolutions’ always get worn down by one’s true nature. Oh, well, onwards and upwards and remember ‘Don’t let the bastards grind you down!’
    Have a good new year!
