Poems of the Week

Winter Blues?

by Bruce Bennett

“Feeling sad or hopeless, sleepier than usual and lacking energy in recent weeks?
These mood changes could be a sign of seasonal affective disorder (SAD)…”
The Washington Post

It’s true that I suffer from SAD,
And I fear I may even go mad.
But it’s not cold or snows
Or how the wind blows.
It’s the fact that the news is so bad!
