30 Poems: Day Twenty-Eight

An introspective, fuzzy, photo, to match this introspective, fuzzy, poem.

Needs no explanation…

PANTOUM OF SELF-PITY

Sitting on the scrap heap

My daughter has left me

 I’ve been dumped

My back is stuffed.

 

My daughter has left me

I am a hopeless mother

My back is stuffed

I should lose some weight

 

I am a hopeless mother

I’m too self-absorbed

I should lose some weight

So men will like me more

 

I’m too self-absorbed

I should be more giving

So men will like me more

And I might get a job

 

I should be more giving

Should listen to others

And I might get a job

Because I am a bum

 

 

Should listen to others

Go on and on about themselves

Because I am a bum

And nobody loves me

 

Go on and on about themselves

These men that dump me

And nobody loves me

I’m just too much.

 

These men that dump me

Can kiss my fat arse

I’m just too much

Even for myself.
