Keeping Busy

Fly swatter in hand
I am soon to be on the hunt
I can’t repaint the living room today or
Fix the air conditioner or
Repave the driveway
Or even scrub the kitchen floor
OK maybe I could scrub the floor
But it is one hundred degrees out today and
Did I mention that the air conditioner is broken
I’m not broken though
Not yet and
The kids are asleep or
At least resting and
I can’t just sit and
Do nothing
Thus I sit her
Fly swatter in hand
Ready to rid the house of the half dozen or so flies that have found their way in
At least as soon as I get done writing this poem
Here in front of my computer
