I Am Annoyed

I am irritated by the banality

Of the phrase

Self-care, which is

Used by people who complain

That they never

Do anything nice for themselves

Because they are so busy giving to others.

Give me a break.

I am annoyed by those who call themselves

People pleasers

Why don’t they just say sycophants

Or door mats

Better yet, martyrs

Just stop pretending to be anything but narcissists

Wielding spurious language

To justify a fucking pedicure.
