Ode to Boredom

I'm just sitting at the keyboard; nothing in particular to say

Just trying to fill up yet-another boring day

It doesn't really matter what this damned thing's about,

it may as well be an ode to boredom, but I doubt

if that will keep others attention, but right now, I just don't care

If there's some other page you'd rather be on, then by all means, go there!

If you stick around though, don't expect profound

I'm not exactly in a thinking mood today, in fact I'm rather down

What day is this, for they all unfold the same

They don't differ very much, in this writer's day

Write a new story, publish it, and start on the next,

all trying to make a statement; have some effect

whether good or bad, as long as it's not ignored,

for if it is, what the hell's this writing for?
