To Whom It May Concern.
Dear God (or whoever or whatever is in charge
if anyone or anything is),
please give me a break and let the bad stuff
stop for a little while
so I can catch my breath
and build my strength
to be able to cope
you have planned
to smack me over the head with next.
I'd ask for good things
but I've learned to be realistic.
