Consumption

 It has been long since I've sat down to write

I fear that I've forgotten how to rhyme

So I apologize if this seems trite

This merely is a way to pass the time

 

But why not read a book or play a game?

What motivates me to make words instead?

When time is passed, it passes all the same.

Why should I really choose to strain my head?

 

I shall elucidate the answers to

these questions, so that my intent is clear.

As I make yet another trip to SLU

I'd rather not waste time, for it is dear.

 

The joy of reading what I've wrote will last

long after all these other joys have passed.
