Feeling as if you are strapped can mean a few differing things
Such as being stuck to a certain situation, bereft of your wings
Or possibly in rather urgent need of extra financial resources
That has taken you on some heretofore untraveled courses
To attempt to address this rather important need in an expeditious way
That would relieve the stress, getting you back in a mood to want to play
Rather than having to be so deadly serious in demeanor all the time
And resuming your friendlier tone, with the easy, better-sounding rhyme
So you mount your plan of attack, carefully laying out the crafted plan
Executing it in a thoughtful way, presenting it the kindest way you can
So that the result might not only be a positive one, but is without negatives
Allowing those who know you to be speaking of you again in superlatives
