WHENESS

I tend to make demands on WHEN —

WHEN to start the day —

WHEN –  to have breakfast —

WHEN to go here or there.

 

In the Rehab Center

I  am well known for my demands.

I want to know WHEN I can leave.

 

I drive people crazy

with my WHENESS.

 

I  am very impatient.

 

And I’ll likely be unchanged

though I must accept

that I don’t know WHEN

the Grim Reaper will attend me.

 

Recently I thought He had

BUT He hadn’t —

and He laughed

when I asked him:

“PLEASE TELL ME WHEN”.
