I've wrote this some time ago when I struggled with the long recover time I needed after doing something fun with family or friends.  smile

The publican –  sad sad sad $_$’  sad sad sad

When everything is going well
You know it’s the end of the magic spell
The publican has arrived in town
and he turns all the faces upside down
He takes the toll for a happy day
and leaves your eyes glazed and gray

When he arrives at your door
Quickly you hide beneath the floor
Down in you base, where you feel save.
Hoping and wishing that he will pass this day
Concealing your smile deep away
So he won’t take your pride as prey

He’s quick, he’s slick and plays foul tricks
While you pray you hear him say “I won’t play hide and seek all day”
The only sound you can make is a little squeak
You take a peek and realizes that you’re weak
So you hide further and further and cry “just go away”
And now you’ve put finally your smile away

The publican grins as he has seen your sin
Your face has turned into a frown 
You’ve paid the price, and he leaves town

The moral of the story is not to avoid the publican but to pay the tax with a smile  smile . If you’ve spend the energy you have well, you need your time to recover. That shouldn’t be a thing to feel bad about. It’s as it is.  great
