On Laziness

The deer saw his playmates sparring, knew he ought to try his luck;
But he might get his antlers dirty -- what a lazy buck!

The drake knew he ought to forage, stick his bill down in the muck;
But he wasn't really THAT hungry -- what a lazy duck!

The rooster saw the sunrise, but in his nest he stuck;
He closed his eyes without crowing -- what a lazy cluck!

I should open up my laptop, and try to make a buck;
but instead I just sit and daydream...
