Lazy Fingers

Lazy fingers
And an idle mind
To write off my worries
All in metered rhyme.

About what?
I know not still.
Just letting thoughts flow
At my heart’s own will

On pain and joy,
Suffering and strife,
Laughter and sorrow,
Death and life,

Slaves and masters,
Rich and poor,
Winning and losing,
Old age and youth,

Angels and devils,
Heaven and hell.
The good and the bad,
Stories to tell.

In all these cases
I strive real hard
To showcase my views
And utter my charm.

Lazy fingers
And my hot, weary head
Write of my worries
Shown in verses unsaid.

    This is a good poem, Dennis. It could also serve as a list of topics for anyone who had writers’ block. It seems your muse works well, and I also get from this poem that you really enjoy writing & work hard to do it well! Write on.

    I like the easy cadence here and the thoughts expressed so nicely. The list of topics would make a nice challenge for daily writing – but then again, so many of them are iconic aren’t they? Thanks for an enjoyable read.

  6. I love this, Dennis. You are such a faithful poster at the Pantry. So nice to see you here every Sunday:)

  8. I like the listing of the topics to write about….it abounds us, lazy fingers or not…..However, I think it is fear and doubts that hinder the creative process ~

  12. You have set out many interesting contrasts i this poem, in pursuit of an answer for what it may be that worries one at any given time.
