Monkey on my back

This blog has become the monkey on my back of late. As I juggle too many tasks at the one time something has to give, I suppose, and in this instance it has been my blog. 

I've been busy formatting SETH for release as a Kindle version on Amazon, while at the same time continuing my research into the Holmyard Family and reformatting The Hidden Risks for E publishing. Sounds like multi-tasking, but it is really poor organisation on my part. I plan and prioritise yet somehow I find myself slipping back to other tasks when the going gets tough - or when I just need a break from the job at hand.

Tomorrow sees the release of SETH, so today I'll post the final draft for the monkey on my back theme for the poetry group I attend to complete this topic


I don’t have a monkey on my back
I have a whole troop,
Taking turns
To jabber in my ear
With simian sibilance


They are the gatekeepers
To my inner peace
Grim predictions
On sleepless nights
Whistled in the dark;
The burden of weight

I carry

In this jungle of life.

For some reason I'm yet to fathom I'm unable to reply to comments left by others so thank you for dropping by and taking the time to read and comment. Merlene
