Worst Thing With Waiting - Poem by David Harris

The worst thing with waiting
is you never know what to do.
Therefore, to amuse yourself
here is a few things you can do.
Some people twiddle their thumbs,
others tap their feet impatiently,
and others chew their fingernails.
Yet there are other things you can do,
smoke a cigarette, pace up and down,
or even sing a little song to yourself.
All these things help to pass the time away,
when you are waiting for someone or some thing,
and you do not know what to do.
