So here it is, just another day of nothingness.

I’ve come to take them for granted more or less.

They all start with the alarm clock ringing.

They all end with a lullaby’s singing.

In between is when most things are to happen

But with nothing going on, I’m prone to nappin’.

That leads to my being up all night still doing nothing.

If I threaten to do anything I’m suspected of bluffing.

It seems to be a pattern, a cycle if you may

That turns the hours into nothing every day.

 It can be repetitious and a bit of a bore.

There’s barely nothing to do, nothing more.

I’ve given a lot of thought searching for something new,

I’ve come up with nothing on my own; I haven’t a clue.

I looked for a job but I was confused and misled.

I was told nothing’s open; go elsewhere instead.

But if nothing was open that made no sense to me.

Nothing is what I do; the job fit me perfectly.

With all my knowledge about nothing I could offer advice,

Maybe tell folks who have everything how nothing is nice.

Trouble is, I’m not so sure I buy that argument;

I really sense there’s nothing it can supplement.

So I sit here relegated to huffing and puffing,

Writing this blog everyday that’s all about nothing.
