Tyrant Queen of the Middle East Warzone,
Why do you never cry?
Why spend your days
A pit of sorrow?
Why dry your tears,
When the water could save the camel’s back?
And why share your misery with others?
Cry your heart out,
If you have one.
Let me hear you scream in pain instead of out of anger
I think I would rather that than this desert
Give someone else the chance to dry your tears
You are not the last straw,
But this might be.

Mom was being stubborn again, and it reminded me of the bigger picture here in America~
