TIME DIDDLERS
(12/22/16)

they don't know
what
they want

they
will not take
the simplest
of actions needed
to find out
what that
might be

they want
someone
to provide
an answer
for them

they will
clock block
everyone
within reach

physically

electronically

to aid them
in alleviating
their material
discomfort

they deem
their undefined
desires
more important
than our limited
life spans

customers

coworkers

spouses

family

friends

strangers

sap our energy
so easily
with their purposeless
drivel

we want
to be kind

but we
need
to live

best
to leave them
mumbling
to themselves
in their little
corners
of indecision

we have
nothing
left
to give them

we have
things
to do
