Thursday Inspiration — Not a Happy Camper


I am not
A happy camper
I feel like I’m stuck
In a giant labyrinth
Of adversity
As I look down the line
I can’t discern a way
To escape this maze
Of deceit and corruption

Written for Paula Light’s Thursday Inspiration prompt, where the theme was “happy.” Sadly, I’m not a very happy camper right now. I really need to find and sip from a happy mug.Also for these daily prompts: Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (labyrinth), Word of the Day Challenge (adversity), Ragtag Daily Prompt (down the line), Your Daily Word Prompt (discern).

    I feel the same.  I’ve had stomach flu or food poisoning for over a week now.  Living on ice water.  Today my first meal after doc.  Dry toast!  Which is about the same level as I’m seeing the Biden campaign.  My doc and I discussed T and I said jokingly on the way out, don’t forget to vote!  I said T is acting weirder lately and he said, nothing new with T.  Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying.

    A happy mug is a good idea.
