Words: Oh, I get it!

Oh, I get it!
What you want me to do
What you want me to be
What you want me
to make you feel
So you
don’t have to
make the effort
to move this world
to a better
shape and form
than it inherited
before your feet
even fell
on well-trodden
dirt

Yeah, I get it
all right
These demands
you place
on highest shelf
without step-ladder
nor reaching arm
to obtain
in reasonable
time
with reasonable
care

I get it
I cannot
win
I cannot
make my stand
with hope
of being there
at the end
of this sullen
resentful
day

I get
that I can’t
get it
all right?

I get it

[From Joanne’s prompt: “Inobtainable” (which, isn’t formally a word!)]
