THE RULES OF EXPECTATIONS😁

“EXPECTATIONS CAN BE OVERWHELMING!” a poem. a.k.a.: “Expectations Re-visited!” a part of the poetic (license) series “Expectations of EXs!” 🙂 – Monday – April 30, 2018.

She EXPECTED (that) I’d say: “Hi,” when I moved her purse,

We-were-at-the-poetry (gathering) – and-folks-were-reading-verse,

And I THOUGHT* I’d acknowledged her, when I sat down there,

“But you never squeezed my hand; I THINK you do not care!”

Again! I-was-not –

Up-to-the-task –

Of-fulfilling her-expectations,

I think this world is made complex,

With “(THE) RULES?” –

For relations!**

“Well, I THOUGHT you’d be EXCITED, ‘cause I’m driving into town,

But you don’t seem too excited, so I’m wearing me this frown;

I’ve got my expectations; (and) YOU-BETTER-BE-’UNDER-PAR,’

Fulfill my expectations – fulfill them near and far!”

“BUT! Sweetie, it’s been decades, and I’ve tried to out-guess you,

Another expectation? Such Pressure?! I’m so ‘blue!’

Now, you-have-expectations, and I’m-happy-that-you-do,

But-after years-of-expectations, I-really have no clue,

AND – I HAVE-AN EXPECTATION,

One-that’s-deep-

Inside-my-”soul:”

THAT I’M-S U R E TO-FAIL TO-DO,

ALL-THE-THINGS,

THAT-I,

S H O U L D,

KNOW!!

    • What I get for doing “my own” thinking – Who would-a guessed how poorly I would begin to think as I grew “in wisdom and stature!”

** – I have been unable to get a copy of the rules; I heard they might be “out-of-print!” Dang! 🙂
