I Love Being Right

Log on and read a fabulous article about idleness being close to genius (my interpretation) on the Guardian website. Ha! I have always advocated the languorous approach to life. In fact I wrote a poem myself whilst dawdling in bed before arising. I appreciate it is no Walt Whitman, but I think my small niece will like it:

Don’t Dangle Your Foot Out Of The Bed
Don’t dangle your foot out of the bed
- they’ll have it!
A rat or a bat
A mouse or a louse
Or one of those weird winged creatures.
They like a nice toe to chew on,
so –
don't dangle your foot out of the bed!
