Getting It Off My Chest

I say, "it's good to have
The boys here with me,
I don't think I could stand this alone."
You say, "I still don't see you interact with them
even though you're working from home"
Always with the shame,
blame, game
What did you do?
What did you say?
Would you rather
I didn't discuss my day?
Then surely in silence we will stay

For 27 years
I've endured your denigration
With relatively few rebukes
Of your character or disposition.
We're different people I understand
You're New York
I'm Californian
But damn!
Just a little compassion
Is all that I desire
Genuine affection
Perhaps a modicum of sympathy
I've had enough correction
I hope you now can clearly see
