Tired -- a being tired poem and a writing poem

Gregory K.

I’m tired of reading.
My books are so boring.
I’m tired of sports,
All that running and scoring.
I’m tired of sleeping.
Who needs all that resting?
I’m tired of laughing.
I want no more jesting.
I’m tired of eating --
I’m so bored of chewing.
I’m tired of people
And how-do-you-doing.
I’m tired of learning:
It's far from exciting.
I’d tell you some more...
But I’m too tired of writing.

Thanks, y'all, for joining me for my April poem-a-day postings (of which this is the last). Links to all my blogged poems are over to the right -- under the headline The Poems -- and it's getting to be quite a nice sized list! Now, as noted, I really am tired... so I gotta book. See you in May!

This poem is a fine way to end the month! You posted a list poem--and so did I. Do you suppose that's the kind of poem that worn out poets are inspired to write?

Congratulations on making it to thirty! Are you planning to attempt this again next April???

Thanks Elaine, Tricia, and MC. And I honestly haven't given any thought to next year, Elaine! This is two years running, however, and it's surely been fun both times....

It won't really have effect, I consider like this.
