I’m often hungry
When I’m bored
And I’m often bored

It’s said that
Only boring people
Get bored

I find that expression
Unhelpful to my plight
And quite boring

I’m not bored
Because I lack
Sufficient things to do

I have lots to do
But though time-consuming
It’s all quite boring

I’m often hungry
When I’m bored
And therefore overweight

But I’m too busy
Being bored
To do anything about it
