Who’s Bored?

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

It is not living,

This habit of being bored,

This jaded ennui.

Laziness, ingratitude

Have settled deep in that heart.

 

I truly hate the complaint, “I’m bored!” There is so much to learn about this wide world in which we live; there are so many books to read; so many skills to gain; so many places to go; so many people to meet. That’s what I have to say about that: Banish such a stupid thought!

 

This tanka is a response to the prompts given today at Three Word Wednesday:

  • Bored
  • Habit
  • Settle

Please play along, if you’re so inclined. Feel free to simply use these three words in a blog post, a short story, or a poem.
