I will not worry at all today
No matter what may come my way
Big and Little will return unscathed
We’ll laugh, we’ll play, and we’ll get them bathed
I will not anguish about the Mrs.
And whether we left without our kisses
Her yoga mat will bring much solace
Her mind, her soul, her day– be flawless
I will not fear about the election
Despite the scary conservative selection
Vancouver is lovely all year round
If a nutcase wins, that’s where we’re bound
I will not torment over the economy
Our finances vs. wealth, a true dichotomy
‘Cuz cars are up and job growth’s good
And the stock market will recover, in all likelihood?
I will not be burdened about national security
Or blowing ISIS and ISIL to obscurity
It will be safe to go to the mall
Or to a theatre, or down the hall
I will not panic about bigotry and hate
And the ignorance that plagues our world at an alarming rate
Killers and fanatics could show up any place, anywhere
It’s not a dream; it’s a living nightmare
POTUS said it’s time for innovation
Let’s focus our work in this dear nation
I will not have shpilkes over cancer, strife and disease
It’s time for greatness, not wannabees
I will not fret over global warming
Starving polar bears and the earth we are harming
Let’s harness power in the wind and the sun
Can we ever undo what we have done?
Should I displace the agony of Sandy Hook and too many others?
The anxiety over this surely smothers
Is our nation viler more than ever?
When will it stop; never say never
Worry, shmorry; I’m still afraid
My thoughts still weighted; my hope that will fade
