just one of those days

think I wanna go home
but is that the right play?
or a just case of too much wine
on a sunny Dundee day?

Lake Erie I replaced
with the bonnie River Tay
but Lake Erie was there first
& that scent won’t go away

my bedroom in the basement
picnic table in the backyard
though some days there were problems
life really wasn’t all that hard

I wanna sit in my sister’s kitchen
& have her do my hair
I want to tell my brother
how much I love him, how much I care

I love the life I’ve made for myself
in my bonnie Dundee
so why do I now have doubts
that I made the best choice for me?

I hate the way this virus
has bred distrust & strife
I hate the way this virus
has upended my life

I hate the political point-scoring
Trump & Boris’ endless lies
powerful people who ignore
ordinary folks’ cries

stuck I am
between two countries I care about
thus I weep, I wonder
day in, day out
