The Anti-Device

Ever been cannonaded by enemies,
torpedoed by insecurities,
your self-image bullet riddled by fault;
your attitude shelled and your smile in shrapnel
like a suit of armor held together by a loose bolt ?

When they all zero-in to land on target,
to detonate and make you explode,
do what I did and "mentally" remove
the flush from the side of the commode.

In the morning, I attach it to the side of my head
and await the barrage of the day.
The torpedoes and shells don't hurt any more
'cause I click and flush each one away.

At the close of the day,
there's no backup of tension
or need for intensive therapy.
My Anti-device will work for you
very well like it works for me.

And I'm not implying that you can have mine
or that I will make you a loan.
Just go to your bathroom and open the door,
and there you'll find one of your own !

A shame that this did not gather more readers.  Oh well....it was their loss.
