December 23: Baroque Fix

A day of tediousness and pointless stresses
Combined with ever-growing to-do lists,
Is one that unavoidably depresses,
Inexorable snappishness persists

Until this truly frivolous annoyance
Must needs compete for vanishing attention
Against the zenith of Baroque flamboyance;
Complexity defying comprehension.

As dark can only be destroyed by light
And hate can only be destroyed by love
Banality with Bach we all shall smite,
Via Vivaldi we’ll raise songs above.

When days are filled with sputtering invective,
My concert nights help put things in perspective.
