Jaded

I’m tired of football
and competition,
of heads buried in the sand
I’m tired of heat waves,
of MET office advice and
the Unexpected
I’m tired of headlines
and YouTube comments,
of Twitter feeds and opinions
I’m tired of deadlines
and the HMRC,
of five sleeps until pay day
I’m tired of Royal weddings,
of Love Island and
the Superficial
I’m tired of Southern Rail
and Privatisation,
of the rich feathering their nests
I’m tired of Tribalism,
of patriotic White Men and
the Ignorant
I’m tired of Trade Wars
and Postulating,
of the President of the United States of America
I’m tired of Brexit,
of Boris Johnson and
the United Kingdom
I’m tired of cheap talk
and broken promises,
of pissing in the wind.

I’m tired.
I’m tired because I care,
and I don’t want to.
