The Pantomime of Peace Offerings

One must take responsibility
For all the ills and woes that life can send
When feeling in a muddle
Raise your eyes above the puddle
Remember that you are your own best friend

It’s all this incivility
That lands a damsel squarely in distress
When the wolf is wanting in
And the walls are looking thin
Make more effort, window dressing to impress

There’s no reason you should wait upon the hero
And stand there with your knickers in a knot
It’s a cert he’s very busy
So before you go all dizzy
Take a breath and count the blessings you forgot

Don’t pin your hopes on happy endings
For all of life’s a journey, don’t you know?
Keep a hanky up your sleeve
So you can signal a reprieve
And pack your troubles in your pocket as you go
