To Read or Not To Read?


I bought a book today
Do I need it?
Or, a better question:
Will I read it?
Have I the need to read?
Is it just a passion that I have?
To purchase the pages
That now take me ages
To traverse
As my eyesight gets worse
As my interest in squinting diminishes
Does every book that I buy
Applaud me as it finishes
Being read from cover to cover
Or is it just pleased that its
Travail is over.

  1. I have a few books that must have sighed in relief when I finally finished them.
