Juggling Dynamite on The Carousel

In Chess it’s called a “Zugzwang”,
You injure yourself
Whatever you do!

This, it seems, sums my career.
These three legs of
An unstable stool.

“You really have a paperwork problem.”

So I do my paperwork,
And client contact drops.

“You’re not billing enough.”

So I see my clients more
And paperwork falls behind.

“We fear the auditors are due.”

So I stay late to do it all
But health and homestead
harmony suffers.

“You must attend to your self-care”.

Round and round and round she goes;
Where she stops, nobody knows!
