My Ten-Year Plan

Hello, Worry–back again?
Or not yet gone away?
Why, I thought I kicked you out,
Showed you to the door
And bolted it behind you.

Were you not alarmed
With the plans I made?
Did my strivings not give you pause?
No–why were you laughing
When I wrote out the next ten year?

I thought and I worked
And strategized away–
Yet there you are, just the same.
Tell me, my dear arch-nemesis,
Will you ever leave to stay?
