Another Tuesday poem

From "The Chicken Dinner", 2016, 

Watch the Chickens
I'm standing here in the corner
looking across into the room
Why I'm standing here I don't know
There is no place I want to go

That dear was my plight this morning
Like a chicken just standing there
Three others in the room active
Chicken no place it wants to go

The others are doing their thing
Things to do with places to go
One to school another to work
The helper may end up like me

You could too when nothing to do
When you're through and no place to go
_ _ _

"When you're through and no place to go...." Poignant, Jim. That is when I stand outside looking at the flowers, or the sky..........and being glad my life has slowed and I no longer am rushing off to work.

I think sometimes we just have to stay were we are.

Your poem reminds me of Dr. Seuss' "The Waiting Place" from "Oh, the Places You'll Go."

Sometimes, a body just want to stay put. Maybe for a better view... :-)
