SCHEDULED NAP

SCHEDULED NAP

The coffee’s burbling merrily–

The maker’s aroma good…

I should get back to a nap

Continue sawing wood.

I’ve been up since the crack of dawn

Fingering my keyboard…

I’m stifling a huge yawn,

Today has its reward.

Excuse me while I slip away

For an early-mid morning nap…

It’s a wonder how these early days

Can a poet’s energy sap!

–Jonathan Caswell

(P.S.—I’m not among the idle rich—I work a late second shift!)
