It Bother’s Me
Something about being right
Stirs righteousness indignation
Even when I am sometimes wrong
It’s that visceral fire that lights
Every time my buttons are pushed
As life’s paradigm shifts
It bothers me when I know I’m right
When no one addresses the real problem
Today at d’Verse, De Jackson asked us to write a Quadrille of exactly 44 words using the word Bother!
As I get older, there are a lot of things that bother me, especially when I watch the evening news. It bothers me how things get twisted to fit an agenda, while the heart of the problem gets little or no mention. Perhaps I am getting to old to worry about it. But it still bother’s me greatly!
