Adversity, In Versity

I haven’t used the WordPress daily prompt for quite a while now, but last night’s was “Write a haiku about something that drives you nuts”.

So here is the story of yesterday, re-told through the medium of bonsai poetry:

HR give us forms –
We rate how well we’re working.
Thought that was their job.
*************************
Watering a cup
Then leaving it in the sink
Does not make it clean.
*************************
Raving about cups
To friends who didn’t do it
Makes lunchtime quite tense.
**************************
Stress can make you dizzy
Which is not good for your heart.
I should know that best.
**************************
Now I’ll say sorry
To my best friend at work
She’ll back me – again.
**************************

Has six bits in the middle
It’s just a crock of
**************************
All that drove me nuts?
No, that’s just the whole problem.
I’m already nuts.
**************************
You lot really help
When you are so supportive
Hope you all know that.

Today’s another day
I feel a whole lot better –
Told you I would win.
