One of Those Days

Another hot and sticky day.
The air is still and cloying.
The ants and midges are okay
and bite me – it’s annoying.

I’ve failed at my morning task
and will have to try tomorrow
when I have the right tool
(which I’ll have to borrow).

A small filling fell out last night
and my dentist is not open.
It seems nothing will go right.
I’m a cork in life’s ocean.

Some days are just like that:
one step forward, two steps back.
