What does one do when no work looms?
The Devil offers the best tunes
There are distractions on the Internet
Old films on “You Tube” a safe bet.
A long walk in the nearby wood
A gossip with neighbours – could be good!
A paperback thriller – turning pages
Helps to pass the time in stages.
It’s funny but I can’t see dust
And only clean up if I must
The filing piles up – let it lie
I can ignore it – if I try.
I skim the local rag for news
What’s on this weekend? I can choose
An exhibition? Garage sale?
Should I return to my Email?
At any time of day or night
A brand new message may take flight
Not convinced, I take a peek
But find I am “de trop” this week!
