An Idle Life


Poets preface every day

with trying to find an easy way

to work as little as can be

and devote their time to poetry


We can with candor make the claim

that poet's go against the grain

to give them cover to access

their sympathies toward laziness


God and poets must have rest

yet some overdo the rest they get

they fall into temptation's grasp

embrace the charm of idleness


Still out of idleness described

work's not the thing from which they hide

when asked what they do, they observe

their job is manufacturing words.
