Bored out of my mind

It’s the same ol’ grind

~

I stare off into space

It’s a hopeless case

~

Hours go by

My, oh my

~

Stomach’s growling

I am frowning

~

Desert sands, I see

Golly, I have to pee!

~

Please hurry

My legs are getting furry

~

A long drive ahead

My eyes are gonna be red

~

Nothing else to write

So, I’ll end by saying

~

Goodnight

~~~

I wrote this poem while I was waiting for my fiancé to get his honorable discharge from the Army at Fort Irwin in Barstow.

Collage made using images from Google: sands, woman, eyeball, clocks, and dog legs. Rest of images are my own: sky and my dog yawning.
