I chastise my mind on occasion
for going where it goes
without my leading.


For instance:
Why do I wonder why
the expression “pain in the neck”
came to be a well-used expression
along with “pain in the butt”
and butt sometimes replaced with ass?


As long as I have been me
I have sometimes used each of these
to please me.


But now they disturb my mind
which ought not to go where it does.


Do you ever have this problem?
