“I didn’t get a break today”

I didn’t get a break today

You said

As if 

You expected one


As if 

You could stop

Every need

From everyone

Including yourself 


As if you could count 

On a soft warm bed

Halfway through 

To “recharge your batteries” 

As your mom used to say


But that isn’t how it works 

You’re the parent now

And you’ve just announced 

That you have to poop

So you could write 

This poem.
