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.
