A bad day is skipping breakfast
Because you want to get to work early
For a meeting

A bad day is going to work and finding out
That the meeting was cancelled
And you skipped breakfast for no reason.

A bad day is noticing you left all your money
At home
and you then have to
Skip lunch too.

A bad day is then fainting
Through the day because of
Your lack of food

A bad day is having your boss
Fire you
Because he believes that you
Are too weak and are medically
Not well
Enough to work there

A bad day is coming home
And seeing that your electric is
Turned off

A bad day is then being shunned
From your family
Because you were the
Person who missed
Your grandmother’s death

Day of all,
Is knowing that none of this is true
But you still find yourself complaining
