Prayer Before Sleep, by Nikki Fine

Prayer Before Sleep

I’d like an upgrade, please,
one with an installation wizard,
so I don’t need to go through
the pain of strict dieting,
an exercise regime,
self-improvement classes (plus homework),
or hours and hours of therapy
to convince me I’m good enough already
with no need of an upgrade,
or a wizard.

Nikki Fine used to be an English teacher but has now found better things to do with her time. She also writes, sings and runs. Mad fool.
