I is called the tonic

it's home


IV is the subdominant

it is the link


V is the dominant

usually played as a seventh


it adds tension

before resolving to the I, to home




at this point in the year

the last thing


the very last thing i want

is tension




tension makes the release 

that much sweeter




no, tension makes the day 

that much worse




let us resolve to home without tension

let us do away with the seventh


i don't think it will be missed

I like how you link the chords with tension and everyday reality. Also, the internal conflict in the middle of the poem heightens the narrative.
