I IV V7

 

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.
