Confession Sunday: Should-ing

I beware the self-righteous,

those pedestal dwellers,

who should me to death.

As if they know

what I need to do

or how to run my life.

you should do this

you should do that

you should get married

you should buy a house

you should go to church

you should eat more vegetables

stop should-ing me,

should-ing others.
