  1. Nevermind bedazzled,
    I am frazzled!
    It’s got nothing to do with light,
    Or vision, or the ability to see,
    …. more a case of a flight,
    Beneath my feet!
    To get things done before one can’t,
    … or loses the will to live,
    And shant,
    … the body unable to give,
    When needed, and yet, still,
    … l surprise myself,
    At my determined will,
    … acting like that demented elf,
    At Christmas time,
    Eager to please the older man in red,
    Who himself not willing to fall behind,
    … the magical line of cheer and gifted spread,
    Shouts out ‘Hurry hurry hurry’,
    “We simply cannot be late!”
    “These orders needn’t cause worry,
    …. “And l can’t afford to miss this one date!”
    “The skies are long, and the night is short …
    ….. I have so much that needs to be travelled,
    Over obstacles and what not, and we can’t abort,
    “I need to be there fresh-faced and not baffled,
    Bright-eyed and bushy-bearded, full of chimney sprint,
    …. ready to jump into action and pounce upon the night,
    Ever mindful to not even leave behind a single hoofprint,
    That could cause some concern and others fright!”

    Oh no,
    l don’t wish to be like that elf frantically dashing to and fro,
    Making sure that everything’s ready to go,

    Yet, but, maybe and still,
    Whether l like to say it or not – l am,
    It’s like running backwards on a treadmill,
    …. swimming against the waves of a broken dam!

    Of course, l’ll get everything done; l always do,
    …. but this is why l feel so frazzled,
    Because of the very ‘ness’ of the hoodoo and voodoo,
    Of everything thing, which also reminds me,
    … of the devilry in that film Bedazzled!

    1. Delightful!

      Oh, to bedazzle
      and razzle-dazzle
      makes one frazzled
      and such a hassle
      take a break mate
      for your own sake

      Thank you, Rory, for your dazzling poem!
