Done With The Sick And Tired

There must be a cure,

To fix all this.

Because, I’ll say,

I’m sick of being sick.


Sick and tired,

Of the same old thing.

I'll come up with a solution,

Then, to the table, bring.


I’m sick of their gossip.

They’ve nothing better to do.

What a waste of time,

Aren’t you ashamed of you?


Done with being sick,

Of the news on T.V.

Turn off the channel,

Set my mind free.


No more be sick of the weather,

When it’s cloudy and dark.

I’ll try to be cheerful,

Take an umbrella to the park.


Just plain stop complaining,

About being sick.

No more in my vocabulary,

I’m done with it.

    Can't help it . I'm a weather freak ! Live for tornadoes , floods , and the hurricane of the week . High pressure , low pressure , barometric bars . Cirrus , cumulus, niimbostratus , my how clouds look from afar ! Ice storms , droughts , dust storms that cover the car . Thank God for weather , the least intrusive subject to discuss by far .

      I love the weather too swingline and OUTBACK 🙂 Just wish it wasn\\\'t so destructive. It does keep life interesting and should be respected. Thanks for the comments!

        Thanks orchidee! I have the worst sore throat. Been bad for 6 days. I am going back to work today, after working at home yesterday, and am hoping I will be done with it by the end of the week. Thanks again 🙂

        Thanks HONEY (I have given you a very sweet name ~ because you are !) We live in a sick WORLD HONEY because of SIN & SATAN and every Man (& Woman) worldwide does what they consider what is right in their own eyes. This is why gossip and the TV ~ Radio ~ Internet etc makes us all sick. BUT NOT THE WEATHER ! In the US (like the UK) we have 4 Seasons ~ just as GOD promised so we know (as has happened in my lifetime) Spring always follows a Bad Winter and Summer ~ Spring and then the Fall. GOD designed Planet Earth (and its Seasons) to be the only Living Planet in the Milky Way ~ SO those that complain about the Weather in any Season or any State are in essence complaining against our Creator God. Some climate change is of course "Man Made" and we can't blame GOD for that ! WARMING HUGS ~ BRIAN

          Thanks so very much Dear Brian. I am thankful and feel as you do. Some people love to complain about anything. It is much easier than doing anything about what they are complaining about and what ails them. 🙂 I can tell that you are a problem solver and a faithful person, which is why you are always so positive in your work. Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂

          Whether the weather be wet or whether the weather be fine, I'll retire indoors with the fruit of the vine,

            I was wishing for a glass yesterday, but am refraining as I am trying to get over this laryngitis. But, I agree that wine makes everyday better!

            we cant always carry an umbrella about unless its a retractable that fits into your handbag. Liked your poem. I am sick of being sick too x

            • WriteBeLight

              Thanks Mizzy! Umbrellas are essential this time of year. Easier than wearing a heavy coat. I love the Spring showers in temps about 70 with a rainbow at the end of it all. Thanks for your comment 🙂
