What Doesn’t Kill You … Burns You Out

In Honour of Tax Season

A is appointments and also for allergies
B is for being behind
C is for catch-up on A to Z blogs
D is delirious of mind

E is Ensemble prep
F is full tilt
G is good gracious me
How can I quit?
I is for inquiries
Jamming the phone
K is for killing me
Leave me alone!

M is for Michael who’s leaving for Calgary
N is for no one at home
O is obsessive and chronically tired
P is for pain and perform

Q is work quicker
R is for rum
S is for shit
The damn taxes aren’t done

U – I am coming unravelled this moment
Very eventful today
Writers in Conference with workshops and info
XOXO – it’s okay

Yolo – you only live once
Zap taxes and let’s end these months!

    • Thanks, Rich 🙂

      The rhythm works best if, for letter I, the word “inquiries” is pronounced in’-quir-eez, with a short i in the middle syllable and the stress on the first. Then the cadence works out.

      There are several ways of saying “inquiries” depending on dialect, e.g., in-quire’-eez, which in this case doesn’t work as well.
