what to do when you're bored
What To Do When You're Bored
This is a poem for all the kids out there who are bored.
Actually, it's not really a poem, because I don't really know
what a poem is. I call everything a poem. Unless it is clear
I am writing prose. Right now I am almost writing prose,
but I'm not. I'm going to tell you, in poetry, how to entertain yourself.
First, don't play any video games. They are not a good use of boredom.
Better to lie on your back and look up at the ceiling than play a video game.
And TV isn't much better. Books are the best
except for lying on your back and looking at the ceiling.
What's on the ceiling? Sooooo boring.
What happens to boredom when you dive in?
Eventually it becomes everything.
I could just keep writing like this.
It's easy. Especially because no one will ever read it.
I mean you will, and that's what matters.
