My tea is too hot,

my tea is too cold,

my tea is too sweet,

the milk is too old.


The toast is too burnt,

it’s not brown enough,

I wanted white bread,

Oh no… not the crust!


I can’t find my jam,

the banana’s got spots,

there is no fruit knife,

the apple’s got rot!


The porridge is lumpy,

I can taste tahini,

I’ve added some milk,

and now it’s too creamy!


I’ve lost my spot,

someone else is sat there,

I wanted to sit,

in my favourite chair.


I’m trapped in a corner,

I’m sat in a draft,

I’m too near the door,

Oh! All this is daft!


I should just be grateful,

that I’m here today,

living and breathing,

the middle way.


it’s ten twenty four,

we meditate in a bit,

I stand at the door,

now where shall I sit?


This cushion’s too high,

this cushion’s too low,

this cushion’s too lumpy,

and on it goes…
