Time To Kill? - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Sixty minutes in the course of a life
Should not be that hard to fill
No excuse to be bored
The perturbed mother roared
I’d die for some time to kill
Later that night when the kids were in bed
And the husband still at work
She had nothing but time
And it seemed so sublime
But soon it started to irk
Not a soul to talk to and naught to do
It seems so damn deploring
What would I tell the kids?
I am in for some ribs
I’m not just bored, I’m boring!

Topic(s) of this poem: boredom, hope, humor, humorous, humour, life, love, memory, nature

    I’m not just bored, I’m boring! - that' s the truth about a person in sloth. I had a long way in my life to come to this simple but very wise thought! thank you! (Report) Reply

    I used to (half teasingly) say this to my children when they were younger and complained of nothing to do.: -)
