Just Can’t Say Goodbye

A one-line poem of defiance.

Things I should let go, but can’t even try

Drinking, vaping, cursing-you know why.

Blame the stress; no power of will,

Goodbye to my vices? What a bitter pill!

Especially these days in the time of the Rona, not gonna happen, though I know better!

Thanks to Kathy, Harper, and the whole Chalkboard team!
