"STRESS" by Tom Zart

by Tom Zart

We're a nation of frazzled families,
With little time for personal affection.
As the treadmills of tension keep us hostage,
We're losing our perspective of direction.

Racing to get the kids off to school,
Navigating the madness of bottleneck traffic.
Fearful of our own job-loss and income,
While the newscasts get more hopeless and graphic.

Helping our children with their home work
Scrambling to prepare their dinner.
Having family spats with loved ones,
And being told on Sunday, we're a sinner.

Worrying about crime, taxes, cancer and terrorism,
Infectious disease, and paying next months bills.
Saving for college and our own retirement,
It's no wonder we drink smoke, pray, and pop pills.
