Get up, get up
Didn’t you hear me?
You, hello, yes you
Why are you staring at me like that?
Didn’t you hear me say GET UP
I can’t it’s too hard
Get up you fool
don’t you want to get better?
I do, I do,
But I can’t – don’t you get it?
I would if I could
But I can’t that’s why I need you
Stop being a lazy bum!
Get up, get up
Oh no, he won’t listen to me!
He won’t even get up
There is nothing we can do
So what we give up?
Yes we give up
He’s someone else’s problem now.


This was inspired by ‘real’ events and the impatience of ‘real’ people providing care to someone who needs it. It is easy to proclaim that someone is being ‘difficult’ and not trying hard enough. If someone is going through a bad phase, it is up to us to show perseverance and not the other way around. After all, if they could ‘get up,’ they wouldn’t need our hand now would they?


Starting September, I will be trying to commit more to my blog by following an editorial calendar. This is a part of Blogchatter’s challenge – #MyFriendAlexa – to better your blog’s Alexa Rank by the end of the month by #BetterBlogging.
