Catastrophizing 101

Shackled to a duty to worry

prior to any fact, sparring

with scenarios remote and macabre;

your very own soothsayer 

who never soothes--

 

--and all this done

in the foolish hope that

the suffering endured in advance

might act as prophylactic,

a universe propitiation tactic.

Liked the soothsayer who never soothes! I live with someone for whom the first could have been written! Unusual. Jennifer

Of course, I love the word 'propitiation' -- and I think it is a spot on.
