Heat & Confuse

A Tanka for all the disheartened teachers out there…

They turned up the heat
My to-do lists are insane!
I am so confused!
What should I concentrate on?
Ticking ‘boxes’ or children?

And a HAiku for all you Mid-life ladies… I’m nearing there too!

Woman, Middle-Aged, Swing, Serious, Sad

All hot and flustered
These turns are confusing me
Am I young or old?

    I nearly wrote a hot flush one too, but decided on passion instead! This midlife thing is most annoying!

    Though I can’t physically relate to the second one, understand where it is coming from. Good one.

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
