A poem in praise of routine

Hols are great,

you get to escape.

In a week of bliss,

all stress is at bay.

But unease seeps into dreams

that taunt and hunt,

Those easy-gone days

are just a front

for darker matter

that needs a straitjacket.

Give me routine,

the thrust and grind

of everyday life.

Some peace of mind.
