Fatigue hangs around like the next door
Cat ready to pounce, in the act of pouncing,
Fatigue hangs in the air like millions of
Tiny dumb bells falling on one’s back.
Fatigue surrounds bones, muscles and
Joints, seeping like bone chilling
Dampness into and through the muscles,
Into the bones and the nervous
System causing the muscles attached to
The bones to shiver. It all weakens the
Body politic till it can think only about
Bed, sleep and the dream of a day off,
Way off, so far off, it might never come.
And now, sweet, sweet rest and then
A Tiger Wood’s fist pump.
