What Get’s On Your Wick!

Oh dear lord, the many things
That get right  on our wick
The things that wind up; aggravate
That get us rattled sick

From supermarket checkouts
To “yobs” we see in streets
To cats that frequent our flower beds
To others that we meet

To horses that deposit
Their payload in our way
Or road users who are selfish
With not a care per se

These things that vex, annoy us
what are we going to do
Do we shut up and then put up
Or rant, rave; in such a stew

Or shall we simply legislate
And say to all who bore
We’ll lock you up if you annoy
And make another law

Or shall we learn more patience
To honour true respect
With tolerance; forgiveness
More outlooks to reflect
