I Can'T Be Boxed In A Frame - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I can not sit for long in one zone.
Oh no!
I'm not the one who can sit.
I need a challenge,
To match my itch.

I can not sit for long in one zone.
Oh no!
I get bored with that quick.
My itch will need a quick fix.

I can't be boxed in a frame,
To tame.
And with a label that's named.
No!

I can't be boxed in a frame,
To claim it fits.
And I'll stay the same.
Knowing I'm needing a change.

I can not sit for long in one zone.
Oh no!
I'm not the one who can sit.
I need a challenge,
To match my itch.

Some people like it steady.
Prepared and ever ready.
Like the movement of a clock,
They want to hear and see it moving with a tick tock.

I can not sit for long in one zone.
Oh no!
I'm not the one who can sit.
I need a challenge,
To match my itch.

I can not sit for long in one zone.
Oh no!
I get bored with that quick.
I need a challenge,
To match my itch.
