Ode To A Slacker

Recommended Posts

I have a folding chair

On the patio of my apartment

Next to some plastic plants

That I do not have to water

It is on the third floor

I like to get up early

And brew some coffee

That is stronger than my ambition

Half a teaspoon is enough

I take a book on the porch

And drown myself in sunshine

Occasionally

I will look up from my reading

At the busy road that passes by my world

I see the people

Being beaten to death by the rapids

Rushing over the falls

In the expresslane to early death

I smile in bemusement

Now excuse me while I rush

Into the kitchen

For some more coffee

And why not? Interesting, your post, as today's Taoist thought was:

Every union is destined to be separated; every achievement is destined to be destroyed; every corner is destined to be flattened; every eminence is destined to be overthrown; every activity is destined to futility.

Peace & Love!

~ A haiku for you Sam...

resting in the sun

as the shadows tumble past

the stone is at rest
