Day 22 Waiting

Waiting
Waiting for the next month
To be over before it's begun
For exams
And examinations
To be behind us all,
Hoping for a time,
However brief,
Of rest,
Without 'the next thing'
Hanging over us
Like a threatening cloud
Or the ever-present risk
Of a rug being pulled
From under our feet.
