making the same caustic jokes

It doesn’t stun me
Doesn’t numb me
Doesn’t bind my mouth nor dumb me
Doesn’t kick drum me
Doesn’t become me (cuz you say so?)
Doesn’t make me succumb
Doesn’t make me shrink from
Doesn’t change the rule of thumb
Doesn’t cash a tidy sum
While it is burdensome, loathsome
Un-healthsome, bothersome, irksome
I can breath and ponder some
I’m not lonesome and still lovesome
This whole deal is, well, tiresome
