The Would be Great Outdoorsman by Tom Ham

Thanks for submitting to Fun Writings, Poetry Journal Tom Ham.

I sit and stare
               As I get gray hair
                               At a computer screen all day….
The clock ticks by
               But time does not fly
                               As I work begrudgingly for my pay….
The creek will wait
               No, I don’t use bait
                               I’d be fly fishing if I had my way…

Responsibilities….I’ll not be shirkin'
               For I am accustomed to workin'
Yet too much work can
               Make a jerk
                               …of this “would be great outdoorsman.”
