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.
The haiku just above
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.
