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.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
