The Crack in My Ceiling


There’s a fissure in my bedroom ceiling…
When I feel too lazy to part with my quilt
I get chastised by fixing my gaze on the fault
As it reminds me of four bitter truths:
My ancestors deserve bit more peace…
My kids must find a brighter future…
My finance needs better management…
And my wife expects a responsible me…
You wonder, what’s next? It’s simple,
I throw off my cover and lace up my boots.
You must know to beat your breaking point-
Through every crack in your wooden pane
Sunray is sure to peep next to a filthy rodent!
