Energy of Toddlers

Adults so often marvel
at the bright and boundless
energy of toddlers.

But confine them to a cubicle
for a year and a half
dodging a petty, officious superior.

Raise their insurance premiums
a couple of times,
and tell them their sweetheart
loves a more attractive 6 year old.

They’ll be as anxious & exhausted
by 430 in the afternoons
as the rest of us.
