How I Spend My Spare Time


I sat down today to write a rhyme,
But I didn't have quite enough time.
So, I thought I would play a game
There's a new one - I can't recall the name.
I get addicted so easily to this stuff,
First, cryptograms, Sudoku, and it's all so tough.
Now the new one from Parade magazine
Called Numbrix, it is really keen.
I have to do this to keep my brain functioning
I don't want to spend all my time munchening.
Then I'd have to go on some fancy diet,
But everyone says you might like it if you try it.
So my willpower goes down the drain
And my stomach says, you must be insane,
Instead of eatingk, you should be writing,
But what I wrote is not very exciting.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
