i am tired

 

they said

 

i shouldn’t

 

have thrown the baby out with the bathwater…

 

but the baby, i said

 

was…

 

stillborn

 

 

 

 

they said

 

the icing on the cake

 

was scrumptious

 

but the cake, i said…

 

was…

 

…a mud cake

 

 

 

 

they said

look away

the emperor is naked   

but looking away, I said…

is…

not blindness

 

 

i am tired, tired, very tired

…of…

…bathing dead babies

…eating bad cake

and

…neck pains caused by naked emperors
