Yeah, it's kind of like that

Ever have one of those days where you feel like you are standing in a river, trying to walk upstream, only to be pushed back into the same place... or even further down the river. Today is kind of like that... only the river is made of lava. I am so frustrated I really feel like I need to scream. i just want to accomplish something, anything. everything keeps breaking and nothing is working. I need a nap.

Monkey's Lava River Day Sonnet

There often comes a day when every hour
seems fruitless, empty, painful as a burn
and circumstances work to curb your power
and thwart success wherever you may turn.

On such a day, you sink into despair
and lose all hope for ever getting out.
You stamp your feet and yell and tear your hair
and wail and gnash your teeth and flail about.

On such a day you want to throw a thing
just anything to feel and hear it break
to scream, to hurl, or just to loudly sing
to somehow drown out ennui's deadly ache.

Yet days like these go on like glacial creep.
Far better counsel just to go to sleep.

Wow! Did you write this? I love it! you even managed to get "Glacial Creep" in there. I do really love it! It makes me smile!

Today is going much better.

Composing verse in iambs is worthwhile
when poetry makes local monkeys smile.


Glad you're having a better day.
