Sisyphus was a starter

I’ll grant you all of that

but when it comes to family

people disinvested in getting better

give me the stone & hill every time

I can get agreement

things must change

& as soon as I’m out of the door

the backslide to misery begins again

& lord knows they are unhappy

witness old paint on fresh wounds

always the guide to let you know

& if I get to be the rich man

I’ll set a crew to work building

make me a magic wand strong

ensure it creates holding spells

for those who want changes

but cannot do anything new

in case it costs

takes effort discomfort

hurt
