Coming Apart at the Seams

I have something on my mind. The trouble is, I'm not sure whether to post it in here or not. I'm trying to think of a way of posting it without being too specific. My sister used to call me the Queen of Vaguity, because I had a gift for being so vague that I could discuss something with someone without them having a clue what I was talking about. Being vague has its advantages, but it is also a lot of work. So, here's my problem.

I'm feeling quite upset today. I feel a little like a zebra being devoured by two different lions. Maybe even a whole pride of lions. Mostly what I mean is, it feels like some of the lions are tearing me in one direction, and the others are pulling the opposite way. All in all, it makes for a very unpleasant sensation. It is difficult for a zebra to think or make a coherent choice when her limbs are being torn off one by one. I suppose the average zebra would be dead by the time their situation reached this point, but in this case, the zebra is just getting very angry. Even without her limbs she just might decide to hog tie all the lions with her tail, or head butt them when they are least expecting it. A zebra with no limbs is not terribly mobile, nor pleasant to look at, but at least then the lions might leave her alone. Perhaps she will just die out in the desert, or maybe she'll learn to roll and make it all the way to a watering hole. As long as she does not fall in, she might be okay. In the end, it looks as though the lions have seen her vulnerability and proven her to be completely useless. Once again she realizes that she is stuck between a herd of black horses and white horses, and she can't seem to belong in either herd. Where are the rest of the zebras?

Okay, I have to sign off for now. Sorry about my weird outburst. It was extremely controlled in the interest of common courtesy. I am clearly a plain-bellied sneetch. Bye for now.
