…and now that I am retired
I am getting more tired
doing nothing—
It’s more strenuous,
One never knows when it begins
and when it ends.

Wife, still works,
Kids, all grown up and gone.
Now, the days are purposeless
Nights, sleepless.

Too much is going on
in this beautiful world
with some stupid people running amuck
I sit by the TV and worry.

At a whim or a spark of inspiration
I sometimes sit and write.

But, all in all
I bide my time
I wish for the night to fall
the day never to dawn.
