Middle class problems

When you curse if Waitrose runs out of focaccia.
When you sympathised with Margaret Thatcher.
When an ill-judge tweet costs you your social stature.
You might have middle class problems.
When you feel awkward speaking to the cleaner.
When the okra you cooked has stained the steamer.
When wearing last season ruins your whole demeanour.
You might have middle class problems.
When the rosé's gone flat 'cause you left it uncorked
When the weather's inclement but the pug needs to be walked.
When it turned out it was the postman, and you weren't being stalked.
You might have middle class problems.
When you have aches and pains from your last squash lesson.
When you can't have that barbecue because you've run out of venison.
And when your iphone is your most treasured possession.
You might have middle class problems.
When downloading aps has given you thumb-strain
When your new suede shoes are ruined by rain
When next door's Christmas lights cause you emotional pain
You might have middle class problems.
When your Green Tea you made has too much honey.
And selling home made jewellery online isn't making you money
And no one at the cabaret night thinks your poems are funny.
You might have middle class problems.
Poverty and suffering's all very well,
But an under-dressed salad is your vision of hell.
I think you have middle class problems.
