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
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.
