A Bibliophile Bemoans Being Busy


I often claim I like to read
When I have time to kill
A novel is the ideal thing
If I have hours to fill

I like all kinds of fiction
Few genres make me frown
I’m really not too fussy
I’ll even read Dan Brown

Though truthfully I do prefer
A bit more intellect
But sometimes when I’m tired
More lowbrow is perfect

Lately though I’m finding
That I don’t have the time
To read even the simplest
Of generic clichéd crime

I must now re-examine
How all my hours are spent
Cos having little time for books
Is reason to lament

    Oh, yes. We are indeed getting too busy when we are too busy to read!! Though I have experienced the same more than once in my life.
