I Wonder Why This Is So (Revised) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

I Wonder Why This Is So (REVISED)
Invigorated by new diet I worked like mad checking
my Airports in Africa translation – illustrated with
the right pictures, not strictly necessary but making
the script more interesting

Worked through lunch and teatime, only getting
out of my chair to do back & neck exercise, get
my meal, lentils –so bland, so healthy– drink
one cup of coffee – one terrible hot flush and I

Could work again, rushed home to discover a
wrong email forwarded; pity that pills enabling
me to work like a robot do not improve my IQ,
but at least my mood today was excellent

A joy to feel like a worthy member of society,
grounded in the moment and in communication
with my Higher Self – strange that afterwards it
does not mean as much as a day spent

In the furnace of the allergy – I wonder why
this is so…
