Too Close For Comfort

It is a truism that you only hurt the ones you love. Daily life with those close to you can sometimes close in on you.

Coward

 

It isn’t the soft job it sounds

something like this

Delays, last minute changes

cross, domineering, unreasonable people,

You will be called upon to use all your tact

self-control

even before breakfast.

Not wanting to be boxed in

quite naturally

you may attempt to run away

rejecting too much family life

daring not to be living

between a scrap of paper

and

a loose button
