Boredom


Here I lie
Bored as hell
Released a sigh
That all could tell

Nothing to do
Nothing to say
My time’s not through
As I waste it away

“What lies ahead? ”
As I ponder in thought
And like I said
Less time I sought

The ticking clock
Keeps ticking away
The outside world I block
As time lies astray

Try to find anything
That kills time fast
I have tried everything
Neither could last

So I lie down
On my bed sheet
Looked to the ground
And fell asleep

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
