“My Lazy Day” – A Poem


Lazily I sat on the dock of the bay,

Enjoying the breeze while wasting the day.

I called in earlier and took the day off,

Fooling myself that I intended to play golf…


I didn’t feel like walking,

Sure, didn’t feel like talking.

I sat and soaked up the sun,

I almost got up and went for a run.

Changed my mind quick and fast.

Me, running, shhhh…that’s a laugh!


I had no way to tell the time,

The watch I wear is a 5 and dime.

Clumsily, I stood to go home,

But slipped and fell into the water below.
