Suck it up and Get Over it


Here we are in September, and I’m still hanging in there with my post a day challenge. I have written a lot of poetry using different styles since I started in January. I’m not saying it has been great poetry. I’ll admit most of it wouldn’t win any contests. Surprisingly, Word Daddy has stuck with me through the ordeal. He still says he wants a raise. This month I plan to write Soliloquies. These are rambling monologues where the poet has conversations with herself. I believe this will be my biggest challenge since I don’t often talk to myself. I want to put a disclaimer right at the front of the adventure. The views expressed are the inner dialog of the poet. They might be total bs, but they are real. The first poem in this series I will call Suck it up and Get Over it.

Suck it up and Get Over it

Fuzzy headed women of wit

Suck it up and get over it.

You’ve been watching too much TV news

And you know how it gives you the blues.

You can’t change any of the ills in the world

And wars will rage, bombs will always be hurled

In the direction of the innocent.

The pinnacle of power will never relent

Until we all have fallen to our knees

Or are killed by a deadly disease

And still the world will keep spinning around

Unhampered by pathetic pleas and the sound

Of the cried of mourners in a boneyard of grief

And city dwellers who get no relief

From the dangers in the street

In cold winter and summer’s heat.

Flinching, you wait for the next hit,

But suck it up and Get Over it.

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.

  1. So true. The TV news really give me uneasiness. I just have to stop watching them. However sometimes the curiosity just won’t let up. Life is hard to deal with. Hahaha.
