To Whom It May Concern

Don't ask me how I am doing.

Do you really want to know
how I'm coping with my hernia,
asthma, astigmatism and piles?

Do you really want to know
how I cope everyday - everyday -
with a genetically constipated boss
and colleagues as warm as snakes?

Do you really want to know
how I deal with daily disappointments
of failure, that I'm just another
stattisitc, an also-ran, not done
in life as well as you?

Do you really want to know
how I fret and fume watching
politicians, businessmen, athletes,
work up sleaze and scandal to
fill screen after television screen,
while I wallow in obscurity?

Do you really want to know?
