it all gets too much

It all gets too much
queueing everywhere you go,
people backing off from you
wearing face masks.
it all gets too much
there are no good times
anytime, for anyone,
especially me.
it all gets too much
being under house arrest,
no escape from your loved ones, and those who love you.
it all gets too much
the manic scrabbling for lines
trying to prove your talent
to whoever reads you.
it all gets too much
waking every day in the
same old bed, same old
house, same old me.
it all gets too much
the mediocrity of it all,
unfunny comedy, the
same dull four chords
in every dull song.
it all gets too much
the same ugly face
in the shaving mirror
every bloody day.
it all gets too much
sometimes
it all gets too much
