Worry Wart

Worry is a weary wheel
which wears you down
juggling future lance
with will and won’t
and why not knots
predating date
preclimbing time
before the music starts
before the band is hired
before the song is written
before the whistle works

Worry is the wanton wastrel
whittling away while with why
when where and when are worthy

Worry whacks now with later
whores wit with wait
wets wow with whoa

Worry is the wuss what wins
the waste that warbles
unwonders the was
wilts the will

Worry’s won’t
woe’s wail

    Don’t worry, fret. Don’t fret yet. Take a peek at next week, that will be a Greek geek, alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon. That will be a bleak week, a freaky week, a weak week, a workweek, eek, help, somebody stop me.
