Life isn’t meant to be an endless parade of amusements. “That’s right,” a mother says to her daughter in Maria Semple’s 2012 novel, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette.” “You are bored.

I hope that you will come back o Sarah dear

Our love was not quite perfect though sincere

You told me that you used to have red hair

Wild and curly fierce like Cardiff air

You like to hear my stories mostly you like poems.

You talk of Dylan Thomas,..mention rhymes

I’ll read you my own poem about my pen

You like the rhymes well hidden there again.

They want to be in Vogue,is there a cure?

Truss cannot be trusted for 2 days

Boris Johnson is a clown and boor

I never thought I’d long long for Theresa May.

The House of Commons is a house of whores

Choose what would be most helpful in the moment — whether that’s creating a window to feel your emotions for a few minutes, without trying to change them, or, if you’re in the middle of a pressing task, plan to revisit painful news at a time you can grieve.
