NOT MY THING
(3/7/18)

they
want me
to be busy
when not
on the
job

they
want me
to have
verifiable
hobbies

they
want me
to have
fun

to go
places

to do
something
for the sake
of doing
something

this
is what
they expect
of life

what
they expect
of me

but
I work
until
I drop

then I
rest
in my own
way

doing
nothing
for the sake
of doing
nothing

which
I can do
anywhere

for someone
who was a drunken
teenager
until he was
40

I've played
enough

thanks
for your concern
anyway
